More Protests By Cambridge Students

A man has been arrested as hundreds of students gathered in Cambridge to protest against the expected rise in tuition fees.

Cambridgeshire Police have confirmed the arrest was made in the city centre for obstructing a police officer.

The 23 year old man has been released on bail and is due to appear at Cambridge Magistrate's Court early in December.

Around 500 people said on the social networking site Facebook that they would be attending the demonstration starting at Great St Mary's Church, near Kings College.

The gathered there at noon before marching through Cambridge.

A number of similar protests have also been organised in towns and cities across the country, including London, Birmingham and Leeds.

It's all because the government plans to allow universities to charge students up to £9,000 per year in tuition fees from 2012.
