LONDON, November 19. /TASS/. Unrest broke out while students marched through central London Wednesday protesting against tuition fees increase.
According to law enforcement agencies, 11 people were arrested in clashes.
Students’ rally ended up outside the Houses of Parliament where a small group of protesters broke through barriers and clashed with police. Hundreds of police officers were massed to the scene. Protesters were arrested for assaulting police officers and for affray.
"Various missiles were thrown at the officers," Scotland Yard said in a statement. Three officers suffered minor injuries.
Students protest against government decision to hike tuition fees and they have been joined by other campaigners unhappy with spending cuts. About 5 thousand protesters took part in the demonstration making it the first big clash over the last three years.
Since Prime Minister David Cameron came into power in 2010 four protests against austerity measures have led to clashes with police, assaults on public buildings including the headquarters of Cameron's Conservative Party, and almost 400 arrests.
