Joint statement by Professors Adam Tickell (VC University of Sussex) and Debra Humphris (VC University of Brighton).
The scenes witnessed today at the annual Varsity sports day were shocking and disgraceful. A full investigation has been launched into events and any students identified as having participated in the disorder will face serious consequences under our codes of discipline. We unreservedly condemn the behaviour.
The future of fixtures will be under review as part of our wider investigation.
