Thousands of students are protesting in the heart of London in a protest over tuition fees backed by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
The march has caused disruption to Holborn, Trafalgar Square and Parliament square and surrounding areas as students from across the country pour into London.
The demonstration, on Wednesday (November 14), has attracted support from more than 60 student unions across the UK.
The organisers, National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, hope to capitalise on the political momentum for free Higher Education after re-emerging to prominence in June's General Election.
In a post on his social media, Jeremy Corbyn urged young people to attend the march, which is supported by Momentum.
He said: “Everybody should have access to high quality education from the cradle to the grave, without being forced into debt and anxiety. No one should be shut out.
"That’s why I support the demonstration for free education organised by NCAFC. And Labour in government will deliver it.”
A spokesman for Transport for London confirmed that Southampton Row, Strand underpass, Kingsway, Woburn Place, Shaftesbury Avenue, Holborn westbound from Grays Inn Road and Bloomsbury are closed during the march.
Police and TfL are working to divert traffic in the area and some buses will be affected by the travel disruption.
London Underground is accepting bus travel cards in Zone 1 during the course of the dirsuption.
