The University of Glasgow has pledged to review its sexual misconduct policies following complaints from students.

A member of staff at the university was the subject of an Al-Jazeera investigation into alleged sexual misconduct at universities across the UK.

Principal Sir Anton Muscatelli sent out an email to all students on Friday pledging the university would "do more".

Sir Anton wrote: "The safety and wellbeing of everyone in our University of Glasgow community has always been, and always will be, my top priority.

"I am deeply sorry that any member of our community has been subjected to abuse or harassment and to hear that any student or colleague has felt unsafe or unsupported during their time at the University.

"I have listened to you and recognise that we need to work harder to prevent abuse, to educate, and to build upon the support we provide to survivors of gender-based violence and other forms of harassment.

"We can, and will, do more.

"I am initiating a full, independent investigation and review of our colleague and student complaints procedures and support networks, to ensure we do everything we can to safeguard our community.

"I will share more information on the investigation and review as soon as possible, and make a commitment to act upon any recommendations made.

"If you have been affected by these issues in any way, please reach out to us. You will find support resources below if you need them."
