Police are looking for witnesses and video after religious anti-LGBTQ demonstrators fought with attendees of the Gage Park Pride Festival in Hamilton on Saturday afternoon.

Hamilton police spokesperson Jamie Penman said a religious group with banners suggesting gay people will be punished by God was spotted in the park, off of Main Street East this afternoon.

Participants in the Pride festival clashed with the demonstrators in full view of the police. Officers separated the two groups and said they escorted a number of people out of the park.
