Nick Clegg looked to see off any threat to his leadership as he apologised for breaking a Liberal Democrat election promise to oppose any increase in university tuition fees.

Speaking ahead of the Liberal Democrat Party conference in Brighton, the Deputy Prime Minister said he was sorry his party had broken its pledge ahead of the 2010 General Election to vote against a hike in fees for students.
