Scuffles outside France's first gay marriage

French police made at least one arrest as a group of individuals tried to disrupt the country's first ever same-sex marriage ceremony by booing the couple outside Montpellier town hall, where the wedding was due to take place.

Police accompanying Bruno Boileau and Vincent Autin, the first two men in france to tie the knot, struggled with individuals whose boos were mostly drowned out by the cheering of a large crowd gathered outside.

A group of five individuals were seen running from the scene immediately afterwards as police radios announced an order to chase six protesters.
