Staff and students have staged a demonstration at a Leeds college over the closure of three nurseries as well as other potential job losses.

Members of the unions UNISON, the GMB and UCU who work at or attend Leeds City College waved banners and chanted messages outside the Park Lane campus in protest against the cost-cutting measures, which also include the withdrawal of some courses.

The unions said the cuts would lead to the loss of the equivalent of 100 full-time jobs, as well as 36 jobs at the nurseries.
