      WATCH: Election hopefuls try their hand at speed dating

      CANDIDATES vying to become President of the Salford Student Union have been showing off their credentials in a rather unusual way - speed dating.


      Bar Atmosphere set the scene for the traditionally romantic matchmaking process. However it was Politics that was the order of the day.


      Students were invited to speak to all twenty-six candidates for a brief amount of time in order to help them decide who they want to vote for.


      It remains to be seen whether speed dating will be introduced when the General Elections take the country by storm in May but it proved to be a success here in Salford.
