STUDENTS were left shocked when they spotted Hillary Clinton pottering around Oxford

In September the former United States Secretary of State visited the leafy city to receive an honorary degree from Oxford University.

A video taken by surprised students showed the former first lady walking down Parks Road and has since gone viral on the video-sharing app, TikTok. 

The voiceover, accompanying the clip, said: “Help. Why is Hillary Clinton just casually trotting around town with her CIA gang whilst we’re en route to our lecture?”
