Cambridge Protestors No Plans To Leave

More than a hundred students spent a second night staging a sit-in inside Cambridge University.

The students are inside the senior combination room of the Old Schools, which is where the officers of some senior members of the University are located.

The group says it has taken the action because it wants the university "to completely oppose the increase in fees, fight against it, and fight against all cuts to education, welfare and all vital services"

A member of Cambridge Defend Education told Heart that they have a whole day of activities planned including lectures from Professors at the University who are in support of the protest.

Earlier today, a Cambridge University spokesperson said: "The safety of the students involved in the occupation is our primary concern.

We have issued them with legal notices to quit the University premises on which they are trespassing, and look forward to a resolution to this situation as soon as possible."
