We are incredibly saddened to hear that Martin Bowers, one of the members of our community, may be the casualty found in Bristol over the weekend. We want to first and foremost send our thoughts and offers of support to Martin’s family and all those who know him. The University is in close contact with the police leading this investigation and we renew our offer of support wherever we can.
Martin is an active member of our community, mainly through a number of our student societies. We are getting in touch with the student group that Martin is a member of, offering members support and guidance.
We are very aware of the impact that this news might have, and we urge members of our community to reach out and talk. Student services can be contacted at 01225 383838 or e-mailed at email@example.com. The SU Advice Centre, confidential and independent from the university, can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Security is available 24/7 and can be called for urgent support on 01225 383999.
Should you prefer an external source of help, the Samaritans run a helpline that can be reached on 116 123.
We will update this statement when there are more updates from the Avon and Somerset Police.
