'Clare' turned to sex to pay fees

The National Union of Students has told Radio 5 live Breakfast that an increasing number of undergraduates are working in the sex trade to pay for their education.

Many are working as escorts or lap dancers to cover their course fees and living costs.

Clare (not her real name) told Rachel Burden why she turned to prostitution when she was 18 to be able to finish her A-levels.
