The University of Lincoln’s Students’ Union has said it ‘apologises unreservedly’ to Jedward, after bottles were thrown at the pop duo during their performance at Quack last night.
In a statement, James Brooks, Chief Executive Officer, said: ‘The Engine Shed is appalled by the behaviour that took place at last night’s Quack and apologises unreservedly to Jedward for the unacceptable treatment that they experienced.
‘The students involved in throwing plastic bottles have been identified, and the situation was dealt with swiftly and professionally by the Engine Shed staff, we are now investigating the incident with other agencies as a matter of urgency.”
The incident comes seven months after Atomic Kitten’s Kerry Katona and Natasha Hamilton stormed off stage when bottles were thrown during their performance at Quack in March.
Kerry tweeted: “Well that was fun!! What a shame when some young boy going through puberty thinks it’s manly to throw bottles at girls!!”
Meanwhile, Natasha said on Twitter: “Gutted that tonight’s gig ended early, 2 all of u who came to see a good show, thank u 4 yr support but when it’s not safe we have 2 leave x”
The Students’ Union later issued a statement in response to reports, and said they were sending flowers to the singers as an apology.
Whilst John and Edward sustained no injuries during their performance, the SU went on to add that ‘the behaviour is unacceptable’, and ‘will be dealt with accordingly’ by them and the university.
