A Newcastle-based girl guide group who were told they would be expelled if they failed to remove God from their oath have won their fight to remain part of the Girl Guides organisation.
The 37th Newcastle Guide Unit at Jesmond Parish Church received a letter from Girl Guiding's chief commissioner in the North East informing them their membership would end if they did not start using a new oath which has no mention of religion.
But the group have now been informed the threat has been lifted.
A Guide troop has been given more time to decide whether to adopt the new Girlguiding promise or be thrown out of the organisation
The 37th Newcastle group in Jesmond is refusing to use the new promise because it no longer mentions God. Girlguiding says the new words welcome girls of all faiths and none. Watch Julia Barthram's full reports.
Girlguiding is extremely sad to hear of any situation which means girls and young women will no longer be able to benefit from the wonderful experiences offered by Girlguiding. This is why we have offered more time for the leaders of 37th Newcastle Guides to reconsider their decision.
"Girlguiding's new Promise warmly welcomes girls of all faiths, and none, to become members. The updated wording grew out of an extensive consultation with over 44,000 people. Our members made it clear during the consultation that they want to retain just one Promise that unites us all behind a shared set of values: to be honest, helpful, kind and considerate; to respect other people and the world around you; to develop your beliefs and have the courage of your convictions; to face challenges; to be a good friend; and to take action for a better world.
"Our priority is always to ensure that as many girls as possible can benefit from the fun, friendship and adventure our charity can offer. We have already offered support to affected parents who wish their daughters to be transferred to an alternative unit.
We very much hope to continue constructive discussions with the leaders in question."
Twelve people in Newcastle have been treated in hospital after taking illegal drugs.
Police and paramedics were called to a house at Osborne Terrace in Jesmond, where the 12 people - nine men aged between 17 and 23, and three women aged between 19 and 24, were taken to Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
