Prince Charles was lobbed hard by protestors in Oxford yesterday, when he visited the University's Said Business School.

Protestors, including CPRE Oxfordshire, are angry about the development of ugly new student accommodation blocks being built by the University of Oxford on the southern edge of Port Meadow, an ancient and much-loved open space in the city.

Protestors say the new buildings are too tall - about two storeys too tall - and damage cherished views of Oxford that have been enjoyed by people for centuries.

ITV news picked up the story.
