Bradford football fan helps to set up anti-discrimination campaign after suffering abuse at games

A football fan from Bradford has helped set up a new initiative aimed at tackling homophobia, biphobia and transphobia within the sport.

Lindsay England says the abuse she's received has been so severe that it's stopped her supporting the England national team.

She's now working with the anti-discrimination charity Kick it Out to help tackle the issue.

Here's the full story:

Eyewitness releases footage as he recounts seeing 'stampede' of people before attacker 'lunged' at policeman

Parliament to resume as normal tomorrow in wake of Westminster terror attack that left four dead

Both the House of Commons and Lords will sit at their usual times the day after the assault at the Palace of Westminster, parliamentary authorities have announced.

Proceedings in the Commons were suspended on Wednesday afternoon as the drama unfolded outside and the House of Lords - which had been due to convene around 15 minutes later - did not sit at all.

An immediate return to normal sitting hours is likely to be seen as a sign of determination that the United Kingdom's democratic processes will not be disrupted by what is believed to be a terrorist attack.

The Commons will sit at 9.30am for questions to International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and a statement from Leader of the House David Lidington, before debates on compensation for Equitable Life policy-holders, social mobility and an incinerator in a Hertfordshire village.

The Lords will convene at 11am for oral questions on nursery care, support for young carers, premium bonds and famine in Africa before debate on homelessness, science and Brexit.

It is not yet known whether any special steps will be taken in the chamber to mark the horrific incidents of Wednesday or to honour the innocent people who died.

Tours, educational visits and banqueting in Parliament on Thursday will be cancelled however.

Access to the public gallery will be maintained.

We can confirm that both the House of Commons and the House of Lords will sit tomorrow at their normal times.
