Same sex marriage debate in the South

MPs are due to vote on plans for gay marriage this evening - a vote which has split political - and public - opinion. If passed the bill would allow same sex couples to marry in both civil - and some religious - ceremonies.

It's a step further than Civil Partnerships - and gives them the same rights as other married couples. Charlotte Wilkins has our report.
