Students at the University of Leicester have been given a new way to relieve exam stress - a bouncy castle to play on.

The giant inflatable assault course has been put up this week to provide students with a break from revision.

Back massages and "cute fluffy animals" are also on offer at the Students' Union to help students combat their exam stress this summer.

Back by popular demand, a petting zoo will return to the Mayor's Walk on Friday, bringing a variety of farm animals including ponies, sheep, goats, chickens and ducks for students to pet and hold.
