On Friday night’s military themed SU night a sexual assault allegedly took place in the SU’s new gender neutral toilets. The top floor of the union was closed off to all attendees and SU staff were not informed of the alleged incident.
The toilets were introduced with the intent to “provide a safer alternative to traditional male and female toilets” according to the SU website. At the time of writing no official information regarding the matter has been released although the police are still investigating the incident.
Although a number of students questioned the practicality of the toilets and many speculated that an incident such as this was inevitable the SU has stated that the toilets are going nowhere.
