On the video, the police officers are seen talking to each other in close proximity of the Accommodation Office's door.

A police car was also spotted parked near the accommodation in the parking bays outside the Alfred Tennyson building.

A University of Lincoln spokesperson said: “Our students are at the heart of everything we do and the activity on campus today was part of some proactive work the wellbeing and student support teams have been doing during Body Positivity Month."

"We have had various events and stands across the campus over the past few weeks, including on World Mental Health Day.

"This morning was about raising awareness of the effects drugs and alcohol can have on the way someone might perceive themselves in body and mind, along with the impact on their general health."

"Our teams were out on campus to discuss any concerns with students and we invited a police officer and his dog onto the campus to support this proactive approach."
