Medical students at Queen's University Belfast have written and released a charity video on YouTube that they have self-dubbed "pure cheese".

'This is SWOT' was written by 4th Year students in the Students Working Overseas Trust society to raise money for third world hospitals.

The students say the song "sums up what our society is about, and it's a new way for us to try and raise funds for those who need it most".

The video sees the band - made up of Jonny McDowell on lead guitar and vocals, Alana Spence on vocals, Sean McNicholl on rhythm guitar, Michael McKee on drums and rap and Luke Ward on bass and vocals - emerge from a hospital ward to perform in their scrubs in front of Queen's Lanyon Building and in front of the Harland & Wolff cranes at the city's docks.

With a style resembling American teen musical show Glee, the students admit "it's pure cheese, but it's been great craic to make".

The single is available to buy on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify with all profits going to third world hospitals.
