Student journalists' protest footage on ITV
ITV Central Footage of Saturday’s TUC rally made by students from the Lincoln School of Journalism has been aired on ITV.

Impressed bosses at Central News requested permission to use the footage after seeing that the students had managed to beat many professional journalists to the dramatic scenes.

ITV journalist Nimesh Joshi said: "I was especially interested in how close they got to the anarchists targeting the HSBC bank. I think the work is really impressive."

The students were also interviewed as eyewitnesses.
