Scaled back gay pride gets underway

London's gay world pride is taking place today - but it will be a scaled down version due to lack of funds.

Organisers say 5,000 people have signed up to participate in the procession in central London.

There will be a party in Trafalgar Square including a set from Boy George and R&B singer Deborah Cox.

However, because of a funding shortage, the event will not include floats or a street party in Soho.
