Universities in the UK have started stockpiling essential supplies in preparation for a possible no-deal Brexit.

In a survey of 75 institutions by Universities UK, all universities acknowledged being prepared for leaving the European Union without a deal to some extent, with 52 per cent saying they were “fully or very” prepared and 48 per cent saying they were “slightly” prepared.
