Thousands of teenagers will have a hangover this morning from a night of partying after this week a new wave of students began in college.
The drunken scenes in Manchester show the students throwing themselves into the party lifestyle as they spent their first weekend away from home.
The city, which is home to more than 850,000 students, was full of fresh faces when they went out to pubs and clubs last night.
The teenagers were seen barricaded in the doors, scattered on the pavements, smooching in the street and taking home.
For some freshers, it was too much, with some students helped by paramedics and others resting on the sidewalk with the police.
Love was in the air for other students who seemed confident after a night full of alcohol.
Others seemed to be worse from the wear and tear as they hugged each other to return home after a night of partying.
Police patrols intensified when thousands of students flooded Manchester as they urged young people to take care of their belongings and stay with friends on a night out.
