Nearly 23,000 have signed a petition calling for his removal

In our latest live Facebook broadcast, Legal Cheek’s resident journos Katie King and Tom Connelly debate whether the Cambridge law student filmed burning cash in front of a homeless man should be booted off his course.

Snapchat footage emerged late last week showing Ronald Coyne — who studies law at the university’s historic Pembroke College — struggling to burn the £20 note while wearing a formal dress code known as white tie. Sparking outrage across the country, a petition calling for his removal has chalked up almost 23,000 signatures.

But should Coyne be allowed to continue with his legal education?
