Government seeking 'thorough' investigation into death of Cambridge student

Cambridge University student Giulio Regeni was found dead in Egypt in February.

The government says it has raised concerns about the death of a Cambridge University student in Cairo with the Egyptian authorities.

It comes after a petition to parliament demanding a full investigation into how Giulio Regeni died reached more than 10,000 signatures.

Mr Regeni's body was found by the side of a road in February. There were signs he'd been tortured.

The British Government wants to see a "full and thorough investigation" taking place into the death of Cambridge University student Giulio Regeni, the Europe minister has said.

David Lidington told MPs that the Government remained in "very close contact" with the Italian government and authorities, and were "giving every possible assistance to try and secure an outcome that gives some answers to Mr Regeni's family".

The diary of a young man who was a student at Cambridge University in the Victorian period is being put on public display for the first time.

It reveals that the stress of exams certainly hasn't changed in the past 150 years.

The notebook can be viewed at St John's College library as part of Open Cambridge week.

Student Francis Hutton's handwriting is suitably spidery and the diary is complete with amusing doodles. It gives a fascinating insight into life at the college in the 1800s.
