http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7647099.stm The University of Gloucestershire says it will investigate after the BBC obtained footage of students taking part in a bizarre initiation rite. The secretly-filmed video shows students with bags over their heads, drinking and vomiting. A university spokesman said a formal inquiry was being launched into alleged "bullying and intimidation" during initiation ceremonies. The National Union of Students has called for a ban on initiations. Initiation ceremonies have become traditional in UK universities and are normally organised by student sport clubs for first-year undergraduates. Nazi-style uniform The video obtained by the BBC shows a group of University of Gloucestershire students lined up against a wall with white plastic bags over their heads. Another student, dressed in a Nazi-style uniform, is seen to encourage them to drink. Several students then vomit onto the ground before being paraded though the streets.
