Lefty Lunacy: ‘Elf & safety alert. Forget drones, it’s mortarboards students must duck


The University of East Anglia has banned graduates from throwing mortarboards in the air for safety reasons.

UEA suggests instead that students mime the act of throwing and digitally include hats afterwards.

A university boss said the headgear poses an “unacceptable risk”, but the Health & Safety Executive say this risk is “incredibly small”.

TCW notes that student life is not without its ups and downs. But being felled by an errant mortarboard is not too high on the list of undergraduate hazards.
