HUNDREDS of students will have to re-take their exams after pigeons swooped into the hall.

Bangor University apologised to 224 law students after the two birds disrupted examinations at Pritchard Jones Hall on Tuesday morning.

A Bangor University spokeswoman said students taking other papers were relocated and continued their exams.

She added: “First year and third year students following modules in public law and international law were those mainly affected.

“Bangor University has apologised to the students concerned and in addition to rescheduling the exams, has assured students that they will not be disadvantaged as a result of this disruption.

“The pigeons left the hall before the afternoon exam session, which went ahead as planned.”
