The email also says that if any similar issues are witnessed, "please call 999 immediately".

Rhys, a first year Marketing student, told The Liverpool Tab:

"It's a bit disconcerting that you can't be safe when you're just attending lectures. Obviously you're not always commuting with other people, so that makes it more worrying as there's an increase in vulnerability there. I really hope this problem is sorted."
