A university ordered to pay more than £50,000 in damages after the suicide of one of its students is seeking permission to appeal the ruling.

Natasha Abrahart, from Nottinghamshire, was studying at the University of Bristol when she died in April 2018.

After civil action, a judge ruled the university had discriminated against her over her social anxiety disability.

The university said the move would allow them to appeal in future but added the decision had not been taken.
