UNIVERSITY students are known for their pranks and one Dublin student was on the receiving end of a classic.

UCD commerce student Fergal Mc Phillips went to Leeds for a football match on Wednesday night and left his keys with his housemates.

However when the 22-year-old returned, he discovered they had taken full advantage of his absence by covering his room in tinfoil.

Nor was it a small job – they covered everything, from the change on his desk to the food in his fridge.

There’s enough tin foil there to kit out a conspiracy theorist convention.

Fergal, originally from Monaghan, posted a video of his sabotaged room to social media, along with the warning: “Never leave your keys with your housemates.”
