The incident came just weeks after a student died after taking drugs on a night out in the city.

Joana Burns, 22, had just completed a degree in mathematics at Sheffield Hallam University when she died after taking MDMA, also known as Ecstasy, on a night out with friends at the University of Sheffield’s Foundry bar on June 6.

Another student - a 20-year-old woman - fell seriously ill on the same evening and is still recovering.
