Protesters Invade Cambridge Uni

26 November 2010, 14:16

Between 100 and 200 protesters have invaded a historic part of Cambridge University.

The demonstrators are members of the Cambridge Defend Education group, which organised a big student protest in Cambridge earlier this week.

A representative from the group said that they are inside the senior combination room of the Old Schools.

That part of Cambridge University 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 Cambridge University spokesperson said: "The university's primary concern is the safety and well being of the protesters and our staff.

This occupation is not affecting the academic life of the university.

We have served notices to the protesters to quit the university premises they are occupying.

We will take any reasonable steps to ensure that disruption occurs to the normal teaching, research and business of the university."

Police are understood to be at the scene.
