MP Grant Shapps has slammed university bosses for what he has described as the "appalling" suffering of residents at the hands of university students in Hatfield.

Residents from a number of streets, including Horsa Gardens, Cunningham Avenue and Walker Grove have contacted Mr Shapps with a range of complaints, including late night shouting, swearing and loud music.
