University staff will go on strike over pay

Staff at universities, including Brighton, Sussex and Southampton Solent, will be going on strike today in a row over pay.

Members of Unison and Unite will be forming picket lines from 7am.

It is their first national strike over pay in 7 years.

The strikes could mean that lectures or tutorials are cancelled, possibly causing disruption to whole departments.

The strikes are predicted to have a "low level impact" on students.
