Breaking with centuries of tradition, a Cambridge University college has decided to allow women to wear trousers and men to wear skirts at formal dinners after a campaign by a transgender student.

St Catharine’s, founded in 1473, has always insisted on male students wearing a jacket, tie and smart trousers while women had to wear a blouse and skirt or dress. But after a campaign by Charlie Northrop, 25, who began transitioning from male to female last year, college officials have agreed to rewrite the rules. The college has become the first at the 800-year-old university to change the formal dress code.
