LONDON - Demonstrators scuffled with police in central London on Wednesday when thousands of students and school pupils protested across Britain against government plans to raise university tuition fees.

Signs were thrown at officers and demonstrators attacked a police van as they massed near parliament in central London.

Two weeks ago, protesters stormed a building that houses the Conservative Party headquarters in London during the first major demonstration directly linked to the 81 billion pound ($130 billion) spending cuts announced by the coalition last month.
