The Students’ Union have released a statement announcing that tonight’s ROAR will be cancelled following two women being taken to hospital after “suspected MDMA ingestion” in the early hours of this morning.
Reportedly the girls are in “critical condition”. According to the police the two women, aged 20 and 22, were on separate nights out in the city centre and are not linked.
The statement went on to read: “We are working with the police and partners in the city to support the ongoing investigation. Over the coming days and weeks, we will once again be sharing safety messages around drug use and nights out.”
The Union did confirm that refunds will be available at Student Unions’ box office for all ticket holders. All online purchases will be refunded automatically.
