    I would bet those causing the trouble aren't your average students.

    There is another student protest in Manchester tomorrow about student fees.

    www.nus.org.uk has all the info and is advising to steer clear of the centre of Manchester.

    Everyone has been warned!

    We were going into Manchester today, went the other way to Preston when we heard about the protests.

    But, I had to pay for my accountancy tuition fees, now I'm paying my debts back from my increased salary.
