A school in north London has been bombarded with homophobic messages after a rainbow crossing promoting equality was painted outside the gates.
Woodside High School in Wood Green painted the colourful crossing to mark LGBT History Month. But it prompted a furious backlash on social media.
The school has been recognised in the past by LGBT+ rights charity Stonewall for its work to tackle discrimination. Pupils said the crossing was important to show their support for LGBT History Month.
Haringey Council said the school was confronting the abuse and the borough had a long history tackling discrimination.
