Vilnius and police in row over whether to keep LGBT rainbow crossing

Vilnius and its police force are set for a court battle over whether to keep a rainbow-coloured pedestrian crossing in the Lithuanian capital. The city council wants to keep the artwork to support LGBT rights, but the police say it goes against traffic rules. The crossing in Pylimo Street was first painted in LGBT colours in 2018. But earlier this year a viral social media video — posted by liberal MP Tomas Vytautas Raskevicius — appeared to show the crossing being painted over. Police say two people have been fined over the incident.
