Intrepid roving reporter Edmund Bannister takes advantage of Hartley library’s 24 hour opening by spending 24 solid hours in there.

Forbidden from leaving from 00:00 on Thursday to a full day later, his only experience of the outside world is limited to within five metres of the library doors. You’re uniquely privileged in that you’re going to watch him degenerate into absolute madness. He’s been provided with a stash of chocolate bars to hide around the library/bribe readers to restock him with essential supplies from the SUSU shop, so you should get involved in the comments below with things you’d like to see him do in his day in the library. Partially because there’s no way the democratic history of the United Kingdom will keep him occupied, but mostly on account of the sheer loneliness that accompanies his thankless task. If you’re a real sadist and want to watch a man undergo a Gasgcoine-esque meltdown, add him on Snap Chat at edmundbannister. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
