A gay clergyman stopped from working as a hospital chaplain has lost his appeal over a discrimination claim against the Church of England.
Canon Jeremy Pemberton, a Church of England priest for more than 30 years, had his permission to officiate revoked after he married Laurence Cunnington in April 2014.
He was also denied a licence to officiate in the diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, which left him unable to take up a job offer at the King's Mill Hospital in Sutton-in-Ashfield.
Pemberton accused the Church of breaching the 2010 Equality Act, but lost an appeal against the employment tribunal in 2016.
The Court of Appeal, which heard the case in January, has also now dismissed his claim.
Speaking about the court's ruling, Pemberton said: "This will seem to most people in the UK today an extraordinary result, and not one that will help commend the claims of Christ to the nation.
"The need for a revolution in attitudes and practices in the Church towards this minority is still acute - we continue to wait for real change."
