Cambridge: a better class of housing protest

“A development of luxury homes in Cambridge has been daubed with graffiti – written in Latin, of course.

Vandals spray-painted the new five-bedroom river-front houses with the words Locus in Domos Loci Populum.

Locals have said the messages, which appear to be a protest against the development, could “only happen” in the university city.

The homes, in Water Street, Chesterton, priced from £1.25m are on the site of an old pub.

Cambridge University Professor of Classics, Mary Beard, said: “This is a bit hard to translate, but I think what they’re trying to say is that a lovely place has been turned into houses.”
