Sikh religion founder film screenings cancelled

A major cinema chain has cancelled all screenings of a film about the founder of the Sikh religion, after protesters in the West Midlands caused a cinema to be evacuated over concerns for safety.

Hundreds of movie-goers were asked to leave on Sunday night after a sit-in protest at Cineworld in Bentley Bridge, Wolverhampton.

Some people said the film Nanak Shah Fakir was blasphemous to the Sikh religion.

BBC Midlands Today's special correspondent Peter Wilson reports.
