LGBT teaching protesters handed permanent school gates ban after high court ruling| ITV News



Anti-LGBT equality teaching protests have been banned permanently from outside a Birmingham primary school which saw weeks of noisy demonstrations, a judge has ruled.

The ban, handed down at the High Court in Birmingham on Tuesday, includes an exclusion zone surrounding Anderton Park Primary School.

The legal bid had been opposed by protesters, along with an interim ban first granted at the same court in the summer.

In March, Anderton Park was forced to close early before half term to protect children.

Birmingham City Council was granted an order temporarily banning protesters from outside the school’s gates in June, over safety fears about repeated large-scale demonstrations, often involving people with no direct connection to the school.

The council welcomed the ruling, saying they would continue to work with the school to “look at the best way to resolve any ongoing concerns”.
