Labour Birmingham Yardley MP Jess Phillips furious row with Muslim parent protestors outside school
Labour MP Jess Phillips was involved in a furious row with Muslim protestors outside a school in Birmingham today amid ongoing protests about LGBT education. 

Police were called to Anderton Park Primary School in the Sparkbrook area of the city last night after pro-LGBT campaigners and members of the Muslim community clashed outside. 

This morning the Labour MP turned up at the school to announce she is calling for an exclusion zone to ensure pupils can get to and from school safely.

It comes after seven weeks of protests by Muslim parents who claim LGBT inclusion lessons are a breach of their religious values and are aggressively promoting homosexuality.

The Birmingham Yardley MP was filmed arguing with parent spokesman Shakeel Afsar, who does not have any children at the school, but claims 600 youngsters were kept at home today as part of their demonstrations.
