Two students were left fighting for their lives after they were each given enough caffeine for 300 cups of coffee in a botched university science experiment.
Sports science students Alex Rossetto and Luke Parkin had volunteered to take part in the test at Northumbria University which aimed to measure the effect of caffeine on exercise.
But after a calculation error, the second-year students were given 100 times the correct dosage, causing violent side-effects and leading to them being admitted to hospital with “life-threatening reactions” in March 2015.
On Wednesday, Judge Edward Bindloss fined the university £400,000 over the health and safety breach.
Dus een rekentoets is ook in het Verenigd Koninkrijk hard nodig!
