Tony Blair's second son has won a place to study modern history at Oxford University, Downing St has confirmed.

Eighteen-year-old Nicky Blair has been accepted at Lady Margaret Hall college next term.

But the PM's office refused to say which grades his son achieved in his A-Levels at London's Oratory School.

"Nicholas Blair has accepted an offer from Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, to study modern history next term," a spokeswoman said.

Lady Margaret Hall was founded in 1879 as a women-only college, and began admitting men in 1979.

Famous alumni include ex-Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto and businesswoman and politician Baroness Hogg.

The prime minister's eldest son Euan Blair won a place to study ancient history at Bristol University in 2002.
