Amid allegations that final year students at University College Cork had breached exam procedure, the university has chosen to withhold specific results pending an investigation.

According to The Irish Times, students from the business information systems course are alleged to have outsourced computer-coding aspects of their final-year project.

It is understood that the investigation was launched after a student alleged that up to 14 peers were involved in presenting work that wasn't their own.

While a large number have been cleared of plagarism, a number of investigations into the claim are currently ongoing, with the university confirming they are involved in "an ongoing process with a small number of students regarding possible breach of its examination procedures”.

As the investigation is ongoing, the university will not be commenting further, but it is understood that if a student is found to have breached procedure, they will face a mark of zero or be excluded from the university.



According to emerging reports, three young women are currently under investigation following the brutal attack on 18-year-old Castleblayney woman, Kym Owens, in Co Kildare last month.

Kim, who is a first year student in NUI Maynooth, was making her way to her digs in the Moyglare Abbey estate when she was assaulted on November 20.

Launching an investigation into the shocking incident, Gardaí took more than 200 statements, and it has been confirmed that three women are currently under investigation.

"Three young females are being investigated for the attack, and it is hoped that they will be interviewed in the coming days," a source revealed.

Urging the public to come forward with any information they may have, a senior officer reinforced the importance of the appeal.

"They can come back to Gardaí in full confidence, they will not be in trouble or anything like that. Their information could be crucial," he said.

Kym, who is currently receiving treatment in James Connolly Memorial Hospital in Blanchardstown, sustained sever injuries during the assault including broken eye sockets, a broken jaw and a broken nose.

Drake is reportedly being investigated by police after allegedly making threats to his ex-girlfriend.

The claims come from model Shaye G, who was previously romantically linked to the Take Care singer.

According to reports, Shaye posted up online photos of expensive gifts that Drake had once bought for her, prompting the singer to send a string of angry messages.

The model is now claiming that the messages carried a threatening tone, with one of them supposedly warning her that if Drake ever saw her, she was “getting run up outta there”.

Shaye went on to report the singer earlier this week, with TMZ receiving confirmation from the police this weekend that they were going to be investigating her accusations.

This isn’t the first time that Drake has found himself at the centre of these kinds of allegations.

During the summer, stripper Jhonni Blaze claimed that she was threatened by the singer’s “people”, who thought she was going to reveal details of their romantic encounters together. 

Drake always denied Blaze’s accusations, and she recently apologised for her statements.



Justin Bieber is reportedly being investigated by police for an attempted robbery!


The 20-year-old pop star is believed to have got into an incident with a young woman who he thought was taking photos him on her mobile phone on Monday while he was in playing mini golf near his home in LA.

The woman claims Justin demanded to see her phone so he could delete the pictures, and when she refused he grabbed it from her bag.

She began ”wrestling” with the star for the phone and although he ”ripped it out of her hands” he wasn’t able to access the pictures because the phone was locked.

Justin then demanded she unlock it and she proved she hadn’t taken any snaps.

Apparently the woman told Justin she and her 13-year-old daughter just wanted to say hi, and Justin screamed that she was ‘humiliating’ herself in front of her child, and told her to leave.

Following the incident, the woman filed a complaint with the LA Police Department.

While Justin has reportedly not yet been charged with a crime, police are taking the matter seriously.

Meanwhile, Justin is currently awaiting his trial for charges of driving under the influence in Florida following his arrest in January.

Oh Justin, what’s next?!
