"Student halls in North Acton have made the shortlist of a competition to find Britain's ugliest new building.

"Woodward Hall, which is home to Imperial College London (ICL) students, has reached the final six of Building Design magazine's annual Carbuncle Cup.

"The 19-storey edifice was so ugly, according to nominator Jonathan Notley, that it inspired him to run for Parliament at the last election in a stand against what he saw as over-development in the area."
