Residents opposed to new modern design of Iran embassy

Residents in central London are opposing plans for a new design for an Iranian embassy building.

The modern design planned for Queens Gate in South Kensington has been described by local people as "insensitive" to its surroundings.

The cube-shaped building will be adjacent to the Grade II listed St Augustine's Church.

A decision on the planning application will be made by Kensington & Chelsea Council next month.
