Homophobic nail-bomb attack remembered by defiant crowd-rousing street choir

A choir sings out a chorus of defiance during the 20th anniversary of the Admiral Duncan nail-bombing which happened on April 30 1999.

The homophobic attack was carried out by self-professed racist and anti-gay Nazi David Copeland who was given six life sentences in 2000 after he carried out a series of sick attacks across London.

Three people died and 79 people were injured in the Admiral Duncan bombing.

On April 30 a large crowd gather on Old Compton Street outside the London Soho pub to listen to a remembrance choir lead by a conductor in the middle of the street.

The words "sing if you're glad to be gay" ring out through the streets of Soho in defiance to the homophobic attack 20 years ago.

Footage shows a huge crowd outside the Admiral Duncan gathered around a small choir. As one song comes to an end the crowd erupt into rapturous applause and cheers.

A small stream of people inch their way through the crowd and police keep a small presence in the area.

Two rainbow flags are attached to the Admiral Duncan hang above the crowd and flap gently in the breeze.
