Nottingham and Loughborough Universites have signed up to a year-long pilot scheme to tackle binge drinking. The scheme is being run by the government and the National Union of Students and is being trialled at 7 universities in total.

It will involve preventing alcohol-related initiation ceremonies, pub crawls and monitoring anti-social behaviour.
