Ed Balls statement on yesterday’s events in central London

Shadow home secretary Ed Balls said: “The police have an incredibly difficult job to do in very difficult and fast-changing circumstances. This was the fourth major protest about the Government’s grossly unfair tuition fees policy in the capital in as many weeks. Thousands of officers have had to be deployed and a number have been injured.

“It is right that there is an urgent investigation into what happened yesterday including the disgraceful attack on the Prince and Duchess’ car. The majority of students protested peacefully, but those who hijacked the demonstration and perpetrated acts of violence must be swiftly brought to justice.”
