Trinity College Dublin is currently investigating their boat club over claims that new members were forced to "strip" and were "whipped" with bamboo canes.

Trinity's college paper, The University Times, said that the 'welcoming' cermony took place after a black tie dinner.

The three-course event took place at the boat club's annual 'Commons' ceremony and the new members or 'novices' were in attendance.

These novices were forced to allegedly withstand the physical abuse and humiliation in order to become full-time members.

Trinity college has said that it is taking the matter "very seriously" and that they will be investigating the alleged incidents fully.
