(Photograph) - A student who has just returned to Newcastle University from her home in China complained this week that people were avoiding her for fear of catching Sars, writes Nigel Burnham.

Elva Wu, a second-year economics student, had been on a trip to Shandong province.

A spokeswoman said: "There is a bit of nervousness around, but there's no hysteria."
