Student protests continue over proposed university fees hike

UK Prime Minister David Cameron is seeking to triple university fees for universities in England from just over £3,000 a year to £9,000. The Commons will vote on the paper on Thursday but the result is no foregone conclusion. After fierce lobbying from students and trade unionists, a number of high-profile politicians have said they're prepared to resign over the matter. Tens of thousands are expected to stage the biggest demonstration yet before voting gets underway.
