In a statement on the incident, UL Students Union president Adam Moursy said that "the students of UL who have collectively had their reputations tarnished due to the alleged actions of a small number of students."
"The university and the Students Union improve and increase their communications with the stakeholders of the local community year on year. I will personally condemn any acts of anti-social behaviour, both on and off campus,” said Mr Moursy, who has received a significant amount of calls and emails complimenting the behaviour of students this year."
