Huddersfield Student Union Calls For Prince Andrew To Resign As Chancellor

A statement from the SU is expected later today.

Students at the University of Huddersfield are calling for Prince Andrew to resign as Chancellor.

The Duke of York is under increasing pressure after he defended his friendship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein in a TV interview.

Since the interview, the Huddersfield Student Union has passed a motion which will lobby for Prince Andrew to resign.

They are expected to put out a statement by the end of the day and are also making an action plan.

Students are expressing their views using the hashtag #NotMyChancellor on Twitter.
