A group of students in Freshers’ Week were filmed by another student chanting and singing about digging up and then having sex with a female corpse. As you do right? We have all been there – you’ve gone out, had a few too many drinks with your buddies and then started bellowing and bestowing the pleasures of necrophilia. Oh wait, NO WE HAVEN’T!
Lines of the singing that were caught on camera include: “Now she’s dead but not forgotten, dig her up and f***her rotten,” which we think is particularly charming, right?
The footage had been taken back in September when term began by a student who did not want to be named, and then handed over to the university’s magazine Impact who put it up on YouTube.
“I’m very happy I did it and effectively it’s put a stop to it,” the student said of the publishing of the footage.

The university was not overly impressed with this pretty vile behaviour and worked alongside the students’ union in their investigation of what exactly had transpired.
After conducting this investigation though they decided that the appropriate action to take was to fine the students in question, each of whom picked up a £150 fine to add to their Freshers’ Week bar tabs and accrued shame.
Students are often known for their loutish behaviour, the combination of alcohol and the freedom of living away from home for the first time for many often combining to create a perfect storm of irascible behaviour. But taking things a little too far is one thing, singing loudly on the way home perhaps after a night in the pub.
Chanting offensive, ignorant sexism is quite another. Throw into this cauldron of horror the ghoulish nature of the students’ chanting and it is no surprise that people, including the university itself, have decided to officially reprimand them with a financial penalty.
What do you think of the students behaviour and the university’s actions? Do they deserve the fine they have received? Did the university of react to a bit of rowdiness?
