Three UK universities in global top 10

Three British universities are in the top 10 universities in the world and five are in the top 50.

Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College are the top UK universities to feature in the Times Higher Education World University rankings magazine and Harvard has been knocked off the top spot by the California Institute of Technology.

The magazine's editor, Phil Beattie, told Radio 5 live Morning Reports what this meant for the UK's universities.
