The University of Sheffield's Students' Union has been voted best in the UK for the ninth year in a row.

It also ranked third out of 122 institutions nationally, and the first in Yorkshire, for having the best all-round student experience.

The rankings are put together following the annual Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2017.

We are delighted to be rated once again so highly for our exceptional student experience.

We take great pride in offering a student experience that is both enriching and inspiring as we know making the choice as to where to study is about more than simply an investment in your career.

University is a life changing opportunity to broaden students' horizons, help them develop socially and academically and transform their future.

– Professor Wyn Morgan, vice president for education at the University of Sheffield

Police have launched a fresh appeal to hunt down a man who's wanted in connection with an attempted murder.

Officers want to speak to Joseph Lowther after a 30-year-old man was stabbed at the Whispers nightclub in Regent Street, Barnsley, on December 18.

The victim is continuing his recovery and is no longer in hospital.

We believe Lowther could have travelled outside of South Yorkshire and has some connections to the north of England, but he really could be anywhere in the country.

I’d urge anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact police and I’d warn any individual who may be shielding Lowther that you could face prosecution for helping him stay undetected.

– Acting Detective Inspector Stuart Hall, South Yorkshire Police

Anyone with information that may aid police should call 101, quoting log 64 of December 18 2016, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
