University of South Wales will see 'small drop' in staff numbers

The Vice Chancellor of the new University of South Wales has told ITV News that while there may be a 'small drop' in staff numbers, there won't be any compulsory redundancies.

Julie Lydon made the comments in response to union concerns about job security.

The institution was formed by the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport and will teach 33,500 students at five campuses.

Speaking to journalists at the launch she said that the "staff make the place."
