Warwick student protestors ordered to leave by High Court

Student protestors at the University of Warwick have been ordered by a High Court repossession order to end their sit-in.

Protesters were occupying the Roots Building at the university for more than a week.

The protest was held over the way a previous anti-fees demonstration was broken up.

West Midlands Police is investigating whether 'disproportionate force' was used in the original protest.

Three people were arrested during the disorder at the original Coventry campus protest on Wednesday 3rd December.

We are glad the protest has now ended peacefully

– Peter Dunn, University of Warwick spokesman

People have been forced to go because the university has effectively made them criminals if they stay.

– Hattie Craig, national campaigner against student fees
