60 Trinity College students claim to have been locked into the campus' Dining Hall without access to food, water or toilets.

The Take Back Trinity group said that at approximately 5 pm on Wednesday, entrances to the Dining Hall were blocked by external security services.

The students are protesting the €450 fee to repeat exams.

In a release, they stated: "Security have made it clear that no food or water will be permitted in the Dining Hall. Toilet access has also been cut off. 

"This was a peaceful occupation, with students allowed to enter and leave the building freely up until now."
