Bristol University student deaths investigated

The BBC is reporting that investigations have begun into three student deaths at the Bristol University.

All three of the students, believed to be first years, are reported to have died in “unrelated” incidents. Police are not treating the deaths of Miranda Williams, Daniel Green, or Kim Long as suspicious.

The university, which has about 22,000 students, offered condolences to their families. Inquests are due to be held at a later date.

Deputy registrar Lynn Robinson said: “These events are always extremely upsetting and our thoughts are with the students’ families and friends.”

Ms Robinson added: “Our student welfare services are offering support to anyone affected.”
