Oxford University newspaper editors resign over paedophile and holocaust jokes





A mock-up edition of the paper, named Lecher, also included photographs of students superimposed on pornographic images.

One story is said to talk of two students sexually abusing and killing babies while another includes a spoof image of a former editor of the paper dressed in a Ku Klux Klan costume making racially loaded remarks.

A spoof story about a busker whose bagpipe music had annoyed Oxford residents joked that the instrument had been used as a means of torture during the holocaust.

The spoof edition was printed and distributed at an end-of-term meal for volunteers at Cherwell in November last year.
