STUDENTS from Scotland are expected to team up with their counterparts from around the UK to march against austerity measures today.

The National Union of Students Scotland said more than 1,000 students from Scottish institutions will travel to London today to join thousands of others from elsewhere in the UK, as part of £demo2012: Educate, Employ, Empower. The campaigners want to see opportunities for graduates increased, youth unemployment lowered and “a properly funded tertiary education system, accessible 
to all”.
