Demonstrators lit a plastic box and other objects in Parliament Square during their protests against planned increases in tuition fees and maintenance grant cuts, in central London, Britain, 9 December 2010. Today most Liberal Democrat MPs are expected to vote for trebling of tuition fees in England to around £9,000 a year instead of the current £3,000. Students accuse the Liberal Democrats leaders of breaking their signed pledge in their election campaign that they would vote against higher tuition fees.
