Sir Ian McKellen's concern over Pride uncertainty in Cardiff

Actor Sir Ian McKellen has said uncertainty over next year's Pride event in Cardiff is "alarming".

The city council said there were "challenges" over the date next year, as the field would be used as a Champions League final fan zone.

Sir Ian said he hoped this did not mean a "serious change of attitude from the elected officials and the people they employ to service the city".

The council said it had not cancelled the event, which celebrates equality.
