University students struggle with Covid restrictions

The National Union of Students is calling for urgent investment in mental health services for students after a poll found over half of those who took part had been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

52% of the 4,000 students surveyed last month said they'd seen a deterioration in their mental health, but 70% of those affected had not sought any help.

The government says protecting students' mental health and wellbeing is a top priority.
