Banners and placards were out in force!

ANGRY students protested to express their outrage about a university-wide curfew.

Around 300 people chanted and brandished placards to show their dissent for a ban keeping them indoors after midnight.

The students protesting against the curfew

The protest at the University of Hertfordshire’s College Lane campus in Hatfield took place at noon today.

Student union president Steve Newnham speaking exclusively to the WHT at the scene said: “This was a way of letting them know our feelings.

“Because of two external incidents we as students have been punished.”

“Sending everybody home at 12pm is not a solution as we need adequate security.”

First year student Carl Green, 20, branded the University’s move “outrageous”.

“We are students and this is not what we want to be tucked up in bed so early.

“With the incidents recently you almost don’t want to go out but they can’t tell us what to do.”

The university’s decision to impose the curfew came after a 20-year-old man was stabbed early on Wednesday morning just outside the College Lane site.
