Rioting students stormed a building which housed the Tory party headquarters, as a national demonstration against tuition fees turned into violence. Hundreds of people were evacuated from Millbank Tower in central London after yobs smashed windows, fought police and set fire to placecards.
Dozens of students headed to the roof of the building and hurled a fire extenguisher off the side and concrete. I was watching it live on the BBC news and it all got out of hand. On the ground, sticks and other missiles were thrown at police from a crowd of at least 1,000. Eight people were taken to hospital with injuries, and a number of arrests took place.
