Students get messy as massive foam fight takes place at Scotland's University of St. Andrews

More than 1,000 students took part in the giant annual foam fight at Scotland's oldest university on Monday (October 21).

Students dressed up in flamboyant costumes before they were showered in a sea of white foam on the University lawns where Prince William and Kate once met.

The messy display marks the end of festivities where first-year students say thank you to their senior mentors identified as their university "parents."

Fancy dress outfits included nuns, bananas and babies.
