A student who was spotted urinating on a war memorial sparked outrage and a police investigation today.
The incident happened during an organised pub crawl involving up to 1,000 students during freshers' week in Southampton.
The man was seen to urinate on the cenotaph, a memorial to those from the area who died in the First and Second World Wars.
The pub crawl last Thursday was set up and stewarded by party organiser Carnage UK.
Catherine Kitchener, county manager for the Royal British Legion in Hampshire, said: "It's today's society and it's different from societies gone past and it seems it is more acceptable to the younger generation to spill out on to the streets.
"I think it's quite sad, I would hope that students would embrace the idea that the memory of those who had made the ultimate sacrifice should always be treated with respect.
"Hopefully, in hindsight, the student might feel some regret."
I was pretty sure there was a thread on this from last year, when something similar happened. The search function didn't really help me though, and I couldn't find anything.
Anyway, so yeh, as soon as I saw the title to this article I knew Carnage would have something to do with it. Thoughts?
