Police horses have charged at student protesters demonstrating over plans to raise tuition fees in London.

Demonstrators in Victoria Street, in turn, threw missiles at the animals and officers.

The BBC's Philip Herd was on the ground when the charge happened. He spoke to Jon Sopel and Emma Crosby.
