It says whole university community is deeply saddened by the tragic loss of the school of social sciences & law student, who went missing on March 27.

Dr Mark Simpson, Dean of the School of Social Sciences & Law, said:

"Matthew came to us from sixth form having made a firm decision to study criminology, as his ambition was to be a member of the police force.

"He was well liked and was described by tutors as being extremely mature in his approach and popular in the group.
