OXFORD City Council will be flying the Union Flag today to commemorate the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new baby.

The Union Flag is flying from the masts at Carfax Tower and the 1930s extension of Oxford Town Hall.

To mark yesterday’s royal birth, the Oxford Society of Change Ringers will also ring Carfax Tower’s six bells from 6pm this evening. 

The new Prince of Cambridge is fifth in line to the throne.
