Thousands of angry university students have gathered in the capital to voice their frustrations at plans to scrap student grants and what they say is the Government’s concerted attack on free education.

Up to 10,000 young people are marching through the city streets, with the rally centring on the department for Business and Skills at 4pm.

The cash-strapped Met Police will see their resources stretched to the limits as they struggle to control the carnage hitting the city with three prepared protests.

At one point, hundreds of protesters burst through the police lines and ran down Victoria Street, cheering and waving flags.

Dozens of police officers gave chase down the road as the marchers darted through central London.

As they ran, protesters chanted: “What do we want? Free education. When do we want it? Now.”

Addressing the crowds, shadow chancellor John McDonnell accused the Government of “betraying” students.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also threw his support behind the protesters by demanding the abolition of tuition fees in a statement read out at the rally.

Mr McDonnell was greeted with cheers as he climbed up a small platform to address the students through a megaphone.

He said: “Your generation has been betrayed by this Government in increases to tuition fees, in scrapping the education maintenance allowance and cuts in education.
