NEWS BRIEF - Boy Knocked Down Outside Union
On the night of Thursday 25th September, a young male was knocked down at the traffic lights outside the Union building. Although it was first thought to be serious, he fortunately escaped with only a broken leg. A busy night by all accounts, due to the Freshers' party taking place in Mandela Hall, a source told The Gown that at this stage it can only be presumed that the injured boy is a QUB student. Laura Hawthorne, VP for Community, told us that she received a phone call about the incident at 1.40am. She remarked that the police were fantastic in the whole furore, and it was passed off without too much trouble.
