It's the eve of the historic boat race between Cambridge and Oxford Universities, but instead of all focus being on the event, Cambridge has been caught up in a row over plans for a new boathouse.

The Cambridge University Women's Boat Club is to review plans for a new boathouse on the River Great Ouse at Ely after objections from The Wildlife Trust.
There are concerns about birds, otters and water voles in the area.
– Anna-Marie Phelps, Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club
"We fully recognise that there are concerns over the environmental impact of this planned development, which is why we have worked closely with ecologists and the local authority to introduce mitigation measures.
We met with the three main local conservation groups last November to discuss the plans and hear their concerns and have significantly modified the plans subsequently to address these."
The Wildlife Trust is fighting plans for a new Cambridge University boathouse on the river at Ely in Cambridgeshire.
It says the site is is part of a corridor between the breeding and the feeding grounds of the bitterns, marsh harriers and other birds and is used by otters and water voles.
– Martin Baker, Wildlife Trust Conservation Manager
“The new Cambridge University boathouse could hardly have been proposed in a more sensitive location for wildlife along the Ely stretch of the River Great Ouse. We advised the University boat club last year that it was the wrong location for their new development, but unfortunately they have ignored us as well as other local opinion, and seem intent on putting the interests of one boat race a year ahead of valuing the local environment.”
