Over 15 months, Stephen Port, a 41-year-old chef from a working class east London borough drugged, raped, and killed four gay men he met on dating apps.

'Big gay kiss-in' staged at London Sainsbury's after homophobia row

Thomas Rees and Joshua Bradwell were in the shop when a security guard escorted them out, explaining a woman had complained about their behaviour.

The story caught wind online after Mr Rees expressed his disappointment at the UK supermarket giant on Twitter.

He told the BBC the incident "knocked me for six", but since the incident they had received messages of support from around the world.
