Mayor 'sorry' not to be wearing pink sombrero at Pride

The Mayor of London has apologised for missing this year's Pride in London festival, releasing a video that will be played on stage during tomorrow's event. In it he says 'I'm very sorry I can't be with you today in the pink sombrero that I've sometimes worn at Pride, but I am with you in spirit'.

'I believe that this event symbolises freedom and London is in many ways the home of freedom, where we have freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of association and of course freedom to be proud of your sexuality.

'If we look at what's been achieved over the last couple of years London has played a huge role in championing those freedoms. We all know there are still problems, there's still intolerance, there's still homophobia that still needs to be tackled and still needs to be opposed.

But this is a time to celebrate what we have achieved, and above all, to celebrate what you have achieved. So have a fantastic Pride and have a wonderful day.'
