Pro-life students at the University of Manchester were left “terrified” after police had to hold back an angry mob who turned up to protest their meeting.

Students who attended the event on 29 February say they were egged and spat on, and met with a barrage of verbal assaults, including rape and death threats, that left them fearing for their safety.

The meeting was the inaugural event of the newly formed student Manchester Pro-Life Society and was being held to welcome new members.

The group’s treasurer, named only as Jacob for security reasons, said, “If it wasn’t for the police and security, people would have definitely been physically hurt.

“It made me feel intimidated and threatened. I was genuinely afraid that we would get hurt physically.”

One person at the event said he was only able to get in with the help of the police. Video footage posted to social media shows students being escorted out of the building by police and officers holding back the crowd. Other clips  show students being followed down the street by angry protesters shouting “shame on you” and “F*** pro-life*.

Right to Life UK, which is supporting the pro-life group, said that one participant at the meeting had to be taken home in a police van out of fear for her safety.
