Liberal Democrats Call Off Conference over Fear of Student Protests

Demonstrators had planned to target the regional party conference, which was due to be held in London today, in the latest protests against the Government’s proposal to more than double university tuition fees.

Lib Dems have borne the brunt of the students’ anger after going back on a pledge signed by all the party’s MPs to scrap fees altogether.

The event had originally been due to be held in a north London school, but was moved after the headmaster raised concerns over security, following the violent scenes which accompanied earlier protests.'
