More than 100 people gathered outside the Oxford Union for a peaceful vigil tonight.

They were in St Michael’s Street to express their views on the union’s response to allegations made against its president Ben Sullivan.

Mr Sullivan, 21, was arrested on suspicion of rape and attempted rape on Tuesday, May 6. He is on bail until June 18 and has not been charged with any offence.

He has not been stripped of the presidency of the union.

Student Emma Goldman, 21, who took part, said: “The entire tone of the actions by the union has been incredibly upsetting.”
