University apologises after Julia Rynkiewicz was suspended and investigated over links to an anti-abortion group

The University of Nottingham has paid a settlement to a midwifery student who was suspended from her course because of her association with a student group opposed to abortion rights, admitting it was “considering how we might approach such cases differently in future”.

Rynkiewicz was president of the group, which was initially denied affiliation with the Nottingham University Students’ Union.
