Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has expressed his condolences following the sudden death of a woman in the Cromwell Road area of Belfast.

The South Belfast MLA said:

“My thoughts are with the family and friends of the young woman.

“This is a terrible tragedy and an unspeakable loss for her family and friends.

“This second death of a student in the Holylands in two weeksshould spur all those with a duty of care to our student population to look again at how they are fulfilling their responsibilities.

“I have spent much time in the Holylands and Lower Ormeau over the past ten days as students return to the area and am convinced much more must be done to ensure the wellbeing of our student body.

“Last week, after meeting Queen’s University, Belfast to discuss the challenges surrounding the return of students, I urged the two big universities to convene an emergency forum on this issue. I reiterate that call today.”
