A planned It’s a Knockout event has been cancelled.

The University of Buckingham had planned a family fun day in the style of the 1970s game show on Beloff Lawn, in Hunter Street, to kick off the uni’s Rag Week on August 9.

The idea was for teams of five to battle it out on inflatable obstacles including a 125ft water slide.

Entertainments for children and refreshments were also planned.

But yesterday, Wednesday, the uni announced it has had to cancel the event, due to staff shortages.

A spokesman said: “There just aren’t going to be enough staff to cover it.”
