Vandals have graffitied the word 'snowflakes' across a sign at an entrance to the University of Bath.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary the term is sometimes used in a derogatory way meaning, "An overly sensitive or easily offended person, or one who believes they are entitled to special treatment on account of their supposedly unique characteristics."

The criminal act led to the University's Students' Union President Eve Alcock passionately posting on social media with her thoughts on the graffiti.
