"Stop Stripping in the Library! Oxford Students Threatened With Disciplinary Action Over 'Half-Naked Half-Hour"
Undergraduates at Worcester College have been threatened with disciplinary action if they continue removing their tops in the library on Wednesday afternoons
Up to 40 male and female students became involved in the group action for a 30-minute period between 3pm and 4pm every Wednesday
They carry on their work partly-clothed – some of the girls are even said to have removed their bras.
However high-profile visitors including heads of state regularly visit the library as part of a tour of the university, and there have been a string of complaints.
