However, campus security were quickly made aware of the break in and the suspect was shortly detained by Greater Manchester Police, where he remains in custody.

The items were returned to Salford's Student Union, who told The Tab Manchester:

"We are extremely grateful for both teams involvement in swiftly resolving this issue and will be reviewing our security measures here to make sure this never occurs again."

However, some students remained unnerved by the incident. Grace Cartey, Media third year, told The Tab Manchester: "It's made me more wary around campus. Its a bit of a weird vibe but I know the Union will be on it in terms of security."

Greater Manchester Police have been contacted for comment.
