Cambridge University re-admit student who burned £20 note in front of freezing homeless man


Mr Davies , an unemployed crane operator, said that Mr Coyne belittled and made fun of him after he made an appeal to bystanders for change.

He said the Cambridge Student, Ronald Coyne, said:

“How’s that for change, I’ve changed it into flames.”

“He says let’s see what I’ve got and pulls out a £20 note and went to pass it to me.

I couldn’t believe my luck, know what I mean. But then he pulled it back and lit it, burnt it and he says: ‘How’s that for change, I’ve changed it into flames.’

It was absolutely disgusting. It was horrible. Just plain nasty.”
