HUNDREDS of protestors marched on Sheffield’s City Hall this evening as, inside, the Lib Dem Spring Conference got underway.
The mood was angry as the crowd voiced their concerns about tuition fees and public spending cuts, shouting: ‘Clegg Clegg Clegg, out out out!’ and ‘Shame on you for turning blue.’
There was a strong police presence at the eight foot metal fence surrounding the perimeter of the City Hall, which protected the delegates as they arrived for the three-day event.
‘You’re a traitor to your class’ protesters shouted in the coppers’ faces at what was otherwise described as a peaceful protest.

“These cuts are disgusting and we’re here to make sure our voice is heard,” said 17-year-old protestor Tom Kay who,a long with a hanfdul of individuals, led the march.
“The main protest will take place tomorrow and Nick CLegg needs to be prepared because this is a fight we intend to win.”
