West Midlands Mayor Andy Street has taken to Twitter to slam the language being used by protesters outside Birmingham’s Parkfield Community School, the predominantly Muslim primary school located in Saltley which is at the centre of an ongoing row about the teaching of LGBT lessons. 

The mayor, who is himself gay, wrote: "The language used by protesters outside the Parkfield Community School towards the LGBT+ community in recent days is unacceptable.
"Our diversity is a great asset for the West Midlands and we must not let intolerance win out."
