LONDON - Thousands of students will march through London on Wednesday in the latest display of anger against the government's austerity measures, with police promising a large presence to prevent any repeat of the violence and rioting seen during the last year.

Some 10,000 people from across Britain are expected to join the demonstration against the Conservative-led coalition government's education policies, the biggest protest since the capital and other English cities suffered four days of rioting in August, the worst urban violence for decades.

Four similar protests by students late last year also led to clashes with police, assaults on public buildings and the Conservative Party headquarters, and almost 400 arrests.

During the most serious disorder, the limousine of heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles was attacked, with the car's windows broken and his wife Camilla poked with a stick.
