Sun sets over Leeds: Leeds becomes the 28th university to vote to stop selling 'The Sun'
Students at Leeds are the latest to vote in favour of stopping selling "The Sun" at their student union.
The decision was made by Leeds University Union on Monday evening during a forum meeting by a committee of 13 randomly selected students. The idea gained support from 10 students on the panel, with just three opposing it.
Put forward by Leeds student Niall MacLaughlin, the proposal was part of the wider “No More Page 3” campaign, which aims to stop The Sun from publishing photographs of topless glamour models on its Page 3. This campaign has gained much support in Leeds since 2012.
The issue has nonetheless been widely debated on campus in recent months, with other students claiming that the decision to stop selling the paper is a form of censorship.
Leeds is the 28th university nationwide to remove "The Sun" from sale in shops on campus.
