Equal pay: Landmark ruling by Supreme Court could benefit thousands

Thousands more women could be able to bring equal pay claims against their former employers, on the basis of a ruling from the Supreme Court.

A total of 174 former Birmingham City Council workers can go ahead with compensation claims over missed bonuses after the council lost a court appeal.

They now have six years to make claims.

Lawyers for the group called the result a "landmark" judgement.

John Moylan reports.
