Gay couple B&B row: 'Right to make a stand'

A gay couple from Cambridgeshire who were refused a room at a B&B say it was right to make a stand against discrimination.

The bed and breakfast owner has lost her appeal against a ruling that she unlawfully discriminated against the gay couple when she refused to let them stay in a double room.

Susanne Wilkinson from Berkshire claims she couldn't let Michael Black and his partner John Morgan from Brampton share a room because it was against her religious beliefs.

Judges at the Court of Appeal dismissed Mrs Wilkinson's challenge but said she could appeal to the Supreme Court.
