A "day of action" has brought thousands of students into the streets of London, Manchester, Sheffield, Edinburgh and other cities in England and Scotland as they protest plans for tuition hikes and budget cuts at U.K. universities.

As you can see from the live coverage being streamed and blogged by the BBC, there's been some violence. There's also live-blogging over at The Guardian.
