Student Toby Pitts says loan error was 'devastating'

Loans were "incorrectly awarded" to 68 Welsh students and later withdrawn, the Student Loans Company has admitted.

The students were told they would get funding for postgraduate courses at English universities beginning in September 2016.

Welsh Education Secretary Kirsty Williams called the situation "totally unacceptable".

Toby Pitts, 21, from Llandeilo in Carmarthenshire, is studying for a master's degree in King's College, London. He said he was "devastated" when told of the mistake.
