Student landlords feel the pinch

The warning comes as more than 600 student flats remain unoccupied - three days in to the of the academic year.

Estate agents say they have seen a drop in interest involving houses which would previously have been bought for students to rent.

Janet Cook, the external accommodation officer for the university, confirmed a new 30m development for students in Lincoln seems to be their new top choice.
