'A cross is part of my Christian identity'

The European Court of Human Rights is due to rule in the case of four British Christians who claim they were discriminated against at work because of their religious beliefs.
All four have lost separate industrial tribunals in UK courts.
They include Shirley Chaplin, who wore a cross to work as a nurse for 30 years, before she says she was told to remove it due to a new policy.
She told BBC Breakfast that she feels it is an important symbol of her faith.
