March 28 2003: AN anti-war protest turned nasty when an angry motorist hurled students’ books in the river and other drivers forced their way through the blockade. Henley College students held a sit-down protest on Henley Bridge at lunchtime last Friday, causing traffic gridlock. They shouted anti-war slogans through a megaphone and refused to let motorists pass despite accusations that they were causing chaos.
A Henley couple are appealing for help in recovering a camcorder tape that contained footage of the first three months of their baby son’s life. It was stolen from their home in Northfield End. The couple, who have asked not to be identified, say the tape is “irreplaceable” . The baby’s father said: “We are not so worried about the camera but we would dearly like the tape back. It is of no use to anyone else.”
The site of the Radcliffe Infirmary Hospital in Oxford has been sold to Oxford University for more than £40 million. The land is currently the base for a number of hospital services which are due to move to new facilities on the John Radcliffe and Churchill Hospital sites in 2007.
