Freshers week madness as students take to the streets and cause chaos

University of STRIFE! Freshers week carnage as sozzled students hurl punches, collapse on street, get carted off by paramedics or led away by police

  • Thousands of new university students arrived in Manchester and enjoyed a night out in the pubs and clubs 
  • Teenagers were spotted slumped in doorways, kissing on the street and being helped by paramedics 
  • Police were out on full force to help the wave of students get safely home after a drunken night of partying
  • Fresh-faced students  in Portsmouth also enjoyed an alcohol fuelled night but with some unsavoury scenes

Thousands of teenagers will be nursing a hangover this morning from a night of partying after a new wave of students started at university this week. 

Some may even be nursing more than a hangover with the alcohol proving too much in some cases with brawls erupting in the early hours with police forced to arrest some party-goers.  

Drunken scenes up and down the UK show the students launching themselves into the partying lifestyle as they spent their first weekend away from home as police urge new students to stick together on nights out. 

Cities across the UK like Portsmouth and Manchester are bursting with fresh faces as they take to the pubs and clubs for the latest installment of freshers week.

Teenagers were spotted slouched in doorways, sprawled on pavements, canoodling on the street and carrying each other home. 

Some unsavoury scenes took place with new students in Manchester brawling in the streets. Pictures also show a young man handcuffed and being led to a police car by officers.

Similar scenes took place during Portsmouth’s official Freshers Moving In Party when a young man and a friend managed to evade police and bouncers after a fight at 1:30 am. 

For some freshers it all proved too much, with some students being helped by paramedics and others taking a rest on the pavement next to police.
