    A total of 58 universities are taking part in strikes over pay, working conditions and pensions.

    Students, facing more disruption after 18 months of remote learning during Covid, have been urged to check with their lecturers to see if their classes are running.

    The union organising the walkouts has warned of further strikes next year.

    Employers have said the action was "frustrating" and said most staff do not support it.

    Tom Horn, 19, a student at the University of Leeds, said: "After a year of strikes followed by a year and a half of online learning, things are just about getting back into the swing and then we're facing the possibility of months of strikes again."

    "We're paying for a service and then we're having to suffer from strikes, which are disrupting our learning," she said.
