Bangor University has issued a statement after a former University student died on board the Malaysia Airline flight MH-17.
Bangor University is saddened to learn that former student Glenn Thomas was one of the passengers on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.
Glenn graduated with a degree in Economics from Bangor University in 1987, and the thoughts of all at Bangor University are with his family and friends at this tragic time.
A former Welsh University student was on board flight MH-17 when it crashed in eastern Ukraine.
Glenn Thomas, a media relations co-ordinator for the World Health Organisation, was one of nine Britons on board the crashed Malaysia Airlines plane.
Mr Thomas attended Bangor University in the 1980's.
The University says they're 'saddened' to hear of the tragedy.
This three-week-old tawny owl chick is now being looked after it was found by a woman walking her dog near Bangor University.
Rachel Taylor happens to be a research officer for the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO).
Although the BTO is not an organisation that normally rescues birds, as a licensed bird ringer she was able to safely handle the chick.
"At this age the increasingly active chicks (probably three or four in a brood) begin to explore around and outside the nest cavity and the more adventurous males do occasionally fall out of their tree" said Rachel.
"The bad weather last night and this morning meant this chick was on the ground, plumage completely soaked through and very cold – which would have been fatal – and unable to climb the tree, making it vulnerable to predators on the ground and ‘invisible’ to its parents."
The bird will now be cared for until it is fully-feathered and has learned to hunt for itself in a 'wild' environment.
It will then be released back into the wild where it was found.
