Students and unions hold protests

Protests have been held in London and Manchester against higher tuition fees and public spending cuts.

Thousands attended a rally in Manchester organised by students and trade unions, accusing the government of "betraying" young people.

In central London, thousands of students staged a noisy protest march through Whitehall and Westminster.
