A man staged a solo protest against same sex marriages in the city centre on Saturday.

Bryan Barkley, who is standing as an independent candidate in the Normanton Town Council by-election, stood in Cathedral precinct with a placard stating “No Same Sex Marriage”.

Two girls also staged their own anti-protest on the same day the law was changed to allow same-sex couples the right to marry.
