Lecturers at the South East's universities walked out on strike today in a row about their pensions. Members of the University and College Union staged demonstrations at campuses including Sussex and Kent.
Employers say the final salary pension scheme is too expensive and is facing a huge deficit. But lecturers fear proposed changes could leave them up to £10,000 a year worse off.
Meanwhile, students are losing out on teaching at a crucial stage of their studies. And some are demanding financial compensation.
