A school head embroiled in a row with parents over LGBT issues has vowed to "never stop" teaching pupils about equality.

Hundreds of protesters have gathered once more outside Anderton Park Primary School in Birmingham as demonstrations reached their eighth week.

Pupils were sent home early before the biggest crowd yet arrived at the gates.

The protests' organiser, Shakeel Afsar, said action would continue after next week's half-term break.

Those against the inclusion of LGBT issues in classes have said the content contradicts their Islamic beliefs, and have accused the school of not listening to parents' concerns.

    

Head teacher Sarah Hewitt-Clarkson described the protests as "horrific" and said that learning about equality was "crucial".

"That's not my opinion, that is the law," she said.

"That is the thin end of a very sinister wedge and our country will fall apart if that happens."
