The Scottish Episcopal Church has voted to allow gay couples to marry in church.

It makes it the first mainstream Christian church in the UK to allow same-sex marriages.
The vote to amend canon law on marriage, removing the stipulation that it is between a man and a woman, was carried by the Synod in Edinburgh.

It means that gay Christians from any Anglican Church can now ask to be married in a Scottish Anglican Church.

Clergy who wish to officiate at gay marriages will have to “opt-in”.

The church said this meant that those who disagreed with gay marriage would be protected and not have to act against their conscience.
