Strong winds forced several LGBT pride events, including in Milton Keynes, to be cancelled or postponed over safety fears.

However, at Ely Pride they were determined their event was still going to go ahead, so they moved the party indoors.

Ariane Richard, Organiser of Ely Pride, said: "We had a weather warning from the Met Office, they called us yesterday and what we decided to do very very quickly was turn the whole pride event inside.

"So it is absolutely manic in there, so many stalls, we are all fitting inside The Maltings but we are having a fantastic time, the party is in full swing already."
