Cardiff Met fights uni merger plan

A university is considering referring the education minister's plans to force it to merge with two other universities to spending watchdogs.

Cardiff Metropolitan University claims Leighton Andrews is asking it to merge with Newport and Glamorgan without a proper business case.

The university's board chair said Mr Andrews's plan was high cost and high risk, and there were other options.

The Welsh government said it will take all consultation responses seriously.

Chair of the board of governors at Cardiff Metropolitan University, Barbara Wilding spoke to Bethan Rhys Roberts on BBC Radio Wales' Good Morning Wales programme.
