Students go on a rampage in university, trample barriers erected for lockdown
Undergraduates at Manchester University concerned about impact barriers would have on their mental health
Worried about the effect it would have on their mental health, a group of students at a university in England went on a rampage and brought metal fences that were put up in response to the new lockdown announcement in Britain.
Scores of furious students at Manchester University smashed the metal barrier and set off flairs in Fallowfield, Manchester, according to a report on Mail Online.
A huge 6ft blockade was erected by workers after the latest shutdown call by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Concerned about the 'devastating' impact the barriers would have on their mental health and finding it to be ‘dehumanising’, the students deduced to bring down the steel fencing, the report said.
The students said they had no prior warning before workers began erecting the metal fencing at halls of their residences.
Meanwhile, in an attempt to quell the unrest, the University of Manchester has tendered an apology for putting up the fences around the perimeter of Fallowfield student halls.
“The fencing was intended as a response to several concerns received over recent weeks from staff and students on this site about safety and security; particularly about access by people who are not residents. There was never any intent to prevent students from entering or exiting the site. I apologise once again for the issues caused by this incident,” said vice-chancellor Dame Nancy Rothwell.
