Two universities in Manchester say they are doing their own inquiries into the behaviour of students on a Dover to Calais ferry. P & O has refused to bring them back from the continent after their drunken rampage on the "Spirit of France" ferry on April the 1st.

Four coach loads of students from the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University embarked on the journey organised by an external travel operator. Students from other northern universities were also thought to be on board the early morning sailing.

Both Manchester universities say they will try to find out who the main troublemakers were.
