Cambridge University end-of-exams party "Suicide Sunday" lived up to its reputation with students collapsing in the streets after downing excessive amounts of alcohol.
Passers-by were shocked to see rowdy bikini-clad students struggling to stand up and vomiting at midday on a Sunday afternoon.
This year for the first time in 80 years the garden party, organised by the Wyverns, an all-male Magdalene College drinking society, had to be held in a new location after officials banned students from holding the event on university land.
The decision was made after a 23-year-old student was arrested during the infamous jelly wrestling contest for punching a spectator.
Extra security and police were also drafted in this time to patrol the party, whilst other college parties elsewhere in Cambridge were cancelled.
But despite the new venue the end-of-exams celebration followed the same format with a blazers and bikini theme, and riotous drinking games.
"The way the students were behaving was absolutely disgusting," said one passer-by.
"It was only midday on Sunday and there were lots of families and young people around enjoying the sunshine.
"The students were lying across the verges, lots of them were vomiting and they were singing rowdy drinking songs.
"I understand they want to celebrate the end of their exams but they were completely out of control."
Many had to be carried or helped away from the five hour party and the police stepped in to help one party-goer who collapsed on a verge.
The highlight of the day was the jelly wrestling contest, with hundreds gathering to watch bikini-clad female students battle it out for a £250 prize.
Some garden parties were cancelled this year as college authorities have become extra wary of binge drinking.
