A would-be university student is taking an Oxford college to court alleging that it turned him down for a place on financial grounds because he could not prove he had enough money to support himself while he was there.

Damien Shannon, 26, from Salford, Greater Manchester, claims that St Hugh's College is discriminating against poorer students by requiring them to prove they can afford living expenses which he regards as disproportionate.
