Leicester student research stories rated most out of left field in May

The feasibility of crying a river and the plausibility of spells in the Harry Potter universe are the top two most interesting University research stories in May, according to a list by PR consultancy Gerard Kelly & Partners.

The article lists the stories as among their favourite education PR stories from last month that they believe deserve a second airing.

'Cry me a River' was also listed by Europe's premier science portal AlphaGalileo as the third biggest story of the month of May.
