Proposed rule changes for same sex dance couples sparks criticism

Tyneside dance instructor, Stuart Hatton, has criticised proposed rule changes by the British Dance Council which could prevent people of the same sex dancing together in mainstream ballroom competitions. The BDC denies it's a ban, but some have accused the organisation of discrimination. Stuart, who is Mr Gay UK, says it should be about choice.
