Leeds Trinity University College student occupation to end

A group of students at Leeds Trinity University College are set to end their occupation when the campus closes for Christmas.

The 12-strong group have staged a sit-in at the Horsforth campus for over a week in protest against the government's plans to raise tuition fees.

The group are expected to reconvene after the festive break and will decide whether to continue their occupation in January.

A spokesman for the occupation said: "As the decision to increase tuition fees has been passed, we are more determined than ever to focus our attention on opposing all the cuts the coalition have planned and have already passed."

They presented a list of demands to the principal which include asking the college to provide written confirmation about any decisions.
