2016 is the biggest ever year for vegans, with brands such as Quorn releasing egg-free products, Guinness planning to create a vegan beer, and Ben & Jerry's announcing dairy-free ice creams.

Why then do so many British universities seem so behind on providing vegetarian and vegan options in their student unions?
Of the 29 million trips made to England by overseas visitors, just 12 percent are to the north.

Or have the feeling of not being able to try calming your traumatised siblings down after they had to run over corpses of neighbours and friends.
