Plans for gay marriage in Scotland

Scotland could become the first part of the UK to introduce gay marriage after the SNP government announced plans to make the change.

Ministers confirmed they would bring forward a bill on the issue, indicating the earliest ceremonies could take place by the start of 2015.

The decision comes after nearly eighty thousand people responded to an official consultation on the issue.
