The European Court of Human Rights will give judgment today on cases involving four Christians who say they were discriminated against in the workplace.

Sixty-year-old British Airways employee Nadia Eweida, from London, says she was prevented from wearing a visible cross necklace.

It is hoped that success today will lead to an overhaul of the Equality Act and other diversity legislation.

Judgment will take place at 0900 UK time.
