Churches in plea over same-sex marriage motion

Catholic bishops are to write to assembly members urging them to vote against a motion that would legalise same-sex marriage.

The Presbyterian Church has also written to politicians restating its opposition to a change in the legal definition of marriage.

The motion, tabled by Sinn Fein, is due to be debated at Stormont on Monday.
