Demonstrators with placards gather together in Trafalgar Square during protests against planned increases in tuition fees and maintenance grant cuts, in central London, Britain, 24 November 2010. This is the second student day of action and a student march on the 10th November caused widespread damage to Millbank Tower. There are plans to raise the student tuition fees in England to around £9,000 a year instead of the current £3,000. Protesters in London had intended to demonstrate outside the Liberal Democrat headquarters - with students accusing the party's leaders of planning to break their signed pledge that they would vote against higher tuition fees.
