Landmark plans to introduce equal marriage in Guernsey have been announced today.
It comes following a consultation which saw around 80% of the respondents say they supported the introduction of equal marriage locally.
Despite this support from the public, the Guernsey arm of the Catholic Church has voiced its concerns.
The proposals also ask for Policy Council to monitor the progress of Union Civile internationally, whilst not actually asking for it to be introduced.
The proposals will be debated at December's States meeting.
