A group of students has occupied part of the University of the West of England (UWE) campus at Frenchay in Bristol.
The occupation has taken place in protest at rising fees and cuts at the University. Spokespersons for the protest say that it is in solidarity with staff and students across the country as well as for future generations who will be squeezed by the cuts.
On Wednesday 24 November there will be protests led by students – at universities, colleges and schools – across the country.
In Bristol the action timetable for Wednesday looks like this:
11am – University of the West of England Walkout begins across all campuses

12:30pm – All students (school, college, university) from across the city to assemble opposite Senate House, Tyndall Avenue
