Drunken Cambridge students wrecked a curry house when they ran amok in a giant food fight.
More than a dozen yobs – many of them bare-chested – poured into the top floor of a city centre restaurant after a day’s drinking.
A mass brawl then broke out between two rivals groups who bombarded each other with food, plates and cutlery.
Some of the well-heeled louts took off their shoes and used them as missiles and a glass bottle hit a girl on the head.
A male student was thrown from his chair and pushed down the stairs and a table was broken in half.
Police were called to help evict the students from the Curry King restaurant but there were no arrests.
Owner Ali Rana, 40, said: “The room was a mess.
“There was broken glass and food all over the carpet, the furniture was smashed and we didn’t finish cleaning up until 4am.
“We had lots of business on Sunday, as it was a Bank Holiday, but many of the customers on the ground floor were shocked and angry.
“They couldn’t believe how the students had behaved.
“We like to have students at the Curry King but there’s a minority of them who ruin it for everyone else.”
The trouble came on one of Cambridge’s notorious annual drinking dates known as
It celebrates the beginning of the summer term which ends with an infamous post-exams party called Suicide Sunday in June.
The curry house clash came when a member of Girton College’s Green Giants stole a bottle of Pimm’s from Jesus College Caesarians.
The bottle was then thrown at the Caesarian in a challenge to fight.
One eyewitness said: “Everyone was drunk from having been on Jesus Green – someone from one of the colleges strawpedo-ed two bottles of wine straight away.
“Many of them arrived with no top on.
“Someone threw a punch, and when one of the boys came over to break it up, he ended up punching his own friend in the face.”
Cambridge officials had urged students to avoid the drunken scenes of previous Caesarian Sundays and ‘find a more fruitful way’ of spending it this year.
The day had earlier passed off calmly with around 2,000 students gathering in the city’s Jesus Green park without the normal boozy antics.
