University cleaner goes on holiday thanks to students.

A university cleaner has been on holiday to Jamaica after students donated £1,500 so he could visit family for the first time in a decade.

About 230 University of Bristol students crowdfunded the week's trip for Herman Gordon and his wife Denise.
