STU­DENTS SUS­PENDED FOR POST­ING FUN PIC­TURE ON UNI­VER­SITY WEB­SITE

youths from nearby towns.

The girls cel­e­brated the 6- 0 drub­bing by pos­ing for a vic­tory snap af­ter they had show­ered – and posted the im­age on the uni mes­sage board.

But se­nior dons at the re­spected cen­tre of learn­ing failed to see the funny side.

And af­ter be­ing sum­moned to see the Vice Prin­ci­pal, the group were sus­pended from lec­tures and sem­i­nars un­til the end of term.

Fel­low stu­dents voted on Fri­day to “down books” in sup­port of what has be­come known as the Titty Five.

Drama stu­dent Con­nie Phelps, 20, said: “It’s aw­ful to be sus­pended and hav­ing this on our records but the sup­port from the rest of the stu­dent body has been ace.”

Last night a spokesman for the uni­ver­sity, which can’t be named for le­gal reasons, de­fended the sus­pen­sion.

He said: “The sus­pen­sion was not for the pic­ture, per se. It was the cap­tion ‘ Ha! We thrashed the lo­cal pikeys and halfwits’ which con­sti­tuted the of­fence.

“Be­hav­iour such as this jeop­ar­dises our out­reach work in the com­mu­nity.”
