University applications fall after fee rise

There has been a fall in applications from British students to start university this autumn.

Figures from the university admissions service, UCAS, show that the number fell by nearly 10% in England, where tuition fees will rise this year.

In Scotland, where Scottish students pay no fees, applications have fallen by 1.5%.
