Pride In London: The Day In One Photo

At the start of the march parade a man is wrestled to the ground by police - assisted by Pride stewards - and arrested for shouting at the contingent from Barclays about their company's tax avoidance.

Other stewards and security tried to stop people and media from taking photos.

Barclays were a main sponsor of Pride In London and led the parade today - the spot had been offered to Lesbians And Gays Support The Miners, but they were later pushed further to the back.

Edit: The Sunday Mirror has mobile phone footage of the end of his 'altercation' with the police [Edit: Oops! Jules Mattsson took it]. He gets a little more, shall we say, 'rowdy' than I thought. Hmm...

Here's a nice picture of a jolly copper showing how much he loves the gays in case there's any confusion...
