A group of peaceful protesters have gathered under the Bridge of Sighs in Oxford to demonstrate ahead of Donald Trumps inauguration.

They are one of many protest groups around the country that hope to send a message.

More are expected to join them at 1pm at Radcliffe Square, to build and topple a cardboard wall and to celebrate the diverse communities of Oxford.

"This protest gives us a chance to really stand-up to the far right. We don't want anyone to be at risk of oppression. We hope to bring community groups together."

Clean. Soft. Hard. Red, white and blue. We're getting a better idea of what sort of Brexit we're heading to.
And we may be getting an idea of what destination the long-running Southern Trains dispute is heading to, as well. And Donald Trump - does he know where he's heading? The Dorchester ... in Southampton?

To discuss all this -

  • Conservative Ed Vaizey MP, from Wantage in Oxfordshire;
  • Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb in Brighton from the Greens;
  • Peter Kyle, Labour MP for Hove in Sussex
