An Oxford society which cancelled a speech by former Home Secretary Amber Rudd has been barred by university authorities for breaching free speech guidelines.

The UN Women Oxford UK society caused an uproar earlier this month after its committee axed Ms Rudd's talk with just 30 minutes' notice.

It was cancelled because of students complaining about the ex-Minister's role in the Windrush scandal.

Ms Rudd tweeted that students should 'stop hiding'.

The Free Speech Union - a mass-membership organisation that stands up for speech rights - sent an official complaint about the society to Oxford University, and its governing proctors have now de-registered the feminist group.

It has also ordered it to issue an apology.
