The England and Wales Cricket Board has announced they are to participate in the Pride in London parade on Saturday.

The extremist group reportedly blocked the parade for 10 minutes, lying down in the street to protest "lesbian erasure" until parade officials urged them to move on.

But organisers said they "absolutely don't condone" the messages distributed by the anti-transgender activists and said they directed the group away from the parade as quickly as possible.

Pride in London later issued a revised statement, saying that "hot weather" and concern for the thousands of attendees' safety are why the group were allowed to march at the head of the parade, adding that organisers "do not condone" the group - although not explicitly condemning them not stating the group's actions. This is a betrayal of the thousands marching.

Some local LGBTQ activists are calling on Pride in London organizers to publicly apologize and resign in the wake of the controversy. "Allowing them to continue betrays the LGBT+ communities by sowing division and hatred at an event aimed at fostering inclusion, love and pride".

"Lib Dems are committed to preserving and extending rights for trans people".

The teams then went back and forth in regulation, and neither could find the victor , sending the game into extra time. The hosts head into the game following a 4-3 penalty-shootout victory over Spain in the round of 16 on Sunday.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS this year, groups representing various parts of the health service are playing a prominent part in the parade.

Back in 2012, as part of the government's Sport Charter to tackle homophobia and transphobia in sport, a number of sporting national governing bodies - led by the RFL and including the European Central Bank - did march together in London's Pride parade as part of a Government-led campaign, but previously no governing body has taken part as an individual organisation.

Ms Camps said the event is taking place at a time LGBT rights issues were more important than ever as the United Kingdom is "falling down the rankings in terms of the best place to be LGBT".

Crowds cheered as the parade got under way with a huge rainbow flag in Regent Street.

Thousands of supporters lined the streets, which were filled with balloons, sequins and flags.

The event also coincides with the 70th anniversary of the NHS and a banner supporting the organisation took of place at the front of the march.
