    The rainbow flag is set to fly from Belfast City Hall for the first time to mark Pride Day on 3 August.

    That follows a decision by a Belfast City Council committee on Friday.

    The Strategic Policy and Resources Committee (SPRC) approved the move following the results of an equality screening.

    The council had previously received a complaint that flying the flag would make City Hall less welcoming for Christians.

    The committee's decision is now expected to be ratified by the full council at its next meeting on 1 July.

    It will be only the second time that flying a flag other than the Union flag has been formally approved by the council since a decision was made in 2012 to fly that flag on designated days only.
