Aberystwyth University students return after storm

Strong winds and high tides have been battering the Aberystwyth coastline this month

Aberystwyth University students can return to their halls of residence today after moving out amid concerns over more severe weather.

Around 600 students were relocated on Friday as a precaution.

A high tide and stormy weather on Saturday evening led to some minor damage to basement areas but didn't affect any student bedrooms. Repairs and safety checks have been carried out ahead of the students' return.

It is the second time this month that student residences along the Aberystwyth seafront have been evacuated due to the poor weather.
