Cops had to call for back-up Posh mag Tatler was there Un­der­grads tak­ing co­caine

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

DURHAM Univer­sity’s Sum­mer Ball de­scended into dirty de­bauch­ery and drug-fu­elled dog­ging as stu­dents rev­elled one of Bri­tain’s wildest par­ties.

Po­lice were twice called to the event, held at Hard­wick Hall near Sedge­field, Co Durham, af­ter re­ceiv­ing re­ports of rowdy be­hav­iour.

When of­fi­cers ar­rived, they spot­ted stu­dents skinny-dip­ping in the hall’s lake, cou­ples at shag all across the prop­erty and un­der­grad­u­ates sniff­ing lines of co­caine.

Peo­ple were also swig­ging cham­pagne from the bot­tle, and cops were vom­ited on by pissed par­ty­go­ers.

Hosted by pres­ti­gious Durham Univer­sity’s Cham­pagne So­ci­ety, posh mag­a­zine Tatler at­tended the ex­trav­a­gant do and ob­served: “Stu­dents rocked up to Hard­wick Hall to chat, dance and most im­por­tantly drink rivers of fizz.”

Around 1,300 peo­ple went to the event, which cost £100 a ticket and was de­scribed on the group’s Face­book page as the “largest, cra­zi­est and most ex­trav­a­gant ball to date.”

At­ten­dees were given two bot­tles of cham­pers with their meal as well as wel­come drinks on ar­rival.

Guests also took ad­van­tage of the fun­fair at the event and many en­tered a raf­fle, the win­ner bag­ging a 27 LITRE bot­tle of Cham­pagne Drap­pier Brut Pri­mat – the sec­ond largest bot­tle in the en­tire world.

How­ever, we can EX­CLU­SIVELY re­veal ex­actly what hap­pened in­side the filthy party, as stu­dent Har­ri­ett Tay­lor-Wilde re­vealed ex­actly what she saw on the night of June 5.

Har­ri­ett said: “I’m now in my third year study­ing psy­chol­ogy at Durham Uni, and I think I learnt every­thing I needed to about peo­ple at that ball – it was crazy.

“I was a sec­ond-year stu­dent and all my house­mates were bang­ing on about this fa­mous ball, so we all de­cided to save up and buy tick­ets.

“I was go­ing to go home early as I’d fin­ished for the year but I was dy­ing to get to the ball – ev­ery­one on cam­pus was talk­ing about it and it seemed the whole of uni was go­ing!

“When we ar­rived, I was given two bot­tles of fizz and quickly downed them be­fore hit­ting the dance­floor.

“The event was full of gor­geous peo­ple and ev­ery­where I looked there were cou­ples snog­ging and grop­ing or snort­ing coke.

“I re­mem­ber looking across the room and there were two blokes fin­ger­ing this third-year girl against the wall. She had her dress down so her boobs were out and her skirt hoisted up so it was eas­ier for them.

“I walked into the next room and it was even dirt­ier! My mate, Anna, was kiss­ing a bloke and her hands were all over his dick.

“Next thing, she moves her­self down his body, un­zips him and starts suck­ing his cock in front of a crowd. Then one girl, a pal of Anna’s, knelt down un­der her and be­gan lick­ing her pussy as Anna was busy gob­bling up her man’s willy.

“It was pure car­nage the en­tire night, I’ve never seen any­thing as filthy as that and I watch porn!”

Another par­ty­goer Mid­week Sport spoke to wished to re­main anony­mous but did say the party “was like a mat­ing ground for the wealthy”.

Durham Stu­dent’s Union probed the event and agreed to place the cham­pagne so­ci­ety on pro­ba­tion and work with them to de­velop an ac­tion plan for the year ahead.

Hard­wick Hall took £45,000 be­hind the bar that night and two stu­dents were rushed to hospi­tal with al­co­hol prob­lems.

In response to the union’s re­port and eye­wit­ness ac­counts, the So­ci­ety have re­sponded.

They said: “Due to the scale of the event amongst other fac­tors, we do recog­nise that there were prob­lems at the ball.

“We are fully com­mit­ted to work­ing in close al­liance with both the po­lice and the DSU in or­der to cre­ate events which are fun­da­men­tally safe.”
