Clubbers from both Trent and UoN have clearly grown attached to the piss-stained, vomit-ridden rug of fun, so they will be delighted to know that Mr Hoe is preserving a foot square piece for his office as well as offering pieces up to students.

The Facebook page description reads: “After making the brave but painful decision to replace the original old faithful smelly sticky piece of loveliness… I have decided that it is just too good to burn.”

The rug really has been swept from under the students’ feet and many Ocean-divers have taken to Twitter to voice their shock and outrage at the decision.
