STUDENTS and lecturers are expected to protest outside St Peter's College, New Inn Hall Street, Oxford, today as higher education minister David Willetts arrives to take part in a symposium.

It follows a no-confidence vote in the minister by lecturers and students in June 2011.

Mr Willetts will be joining Polly Toynbee, Andrew Marr, Gus O’Donnell and Mark Thompson for the symposium on politics and language. Protesters are due to gather at 4.30pm, with the talk starting at 5pm.
