We contacted them after receiving an email over the weekend, claiming they had cut down the rainbow flag which had been flying at Bridlington Police Station to support the LGBT community.

Our invitation to the Men Of BridlingtonAn email signed by 'Piers Plowman', who says he was asked to reply by the group's leader John Ball, arrived from a different email address and was sent to the Free Press, other media outlets, the chief constable of Humberside Police and local councils yesterday evening.

The email says: "We will not be conducting interviews and we will not be photographed. We are willing to consider any questions you have, but you should post these on your website or in some other prominent place and we will then endeavour to respond.

"Do not bother replying to this email, as any further communications to this email account or the other one will not be read."
