Eight more people, including two from Nottingham, have been charged over the anti-fees protest which stormed the building that houses Conservative Party headquarters.

Two women, five men and a teenage boy are accused of aggravated trespass in connection with the demonstration at the Millbank complex in central London on November 10, Scotland Yard said.

A peaceful march by tens of thousands of students and lecturers against higher university tuition fees descended into violence when some protesters forced their way into the building.

The seven adults will appear on bail at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on March 28.

They are: Belinda Edney, 21, of Fleming Gardens, Nottingham; Samuel Peppersharp, 23, of Alexandra Park, Scarborough, North Yorkshire; Lewis Bassett, 24, of Roseleigh Avenue, Nottingham; Paul Sheppard, 24, of Iffley Road, Oxford; India Harvey, 21, of Kingsnympton Park, Kingston, Surrey; Joseph Jones, 19, of Brownen Road, Bournemouth, Dorset; and Adam Mcleod, 19, of Well Street, Hackney, east London.

A 16-year-old boy, from Hornsey, north London, will appear on bail at West London Youth Court on March 8.

Hampshire student Edward Woollard, 18, was sentenced to 32 months in a young offenders' institution in January for throwing a fire extinguisher from the roof of the Millbank complex during the protest.
