Heterosexual couple react after losing civil partnership challenge

A heterosexual couple have lost their Court of Appeal battle for the right to enter into a civil partnership instead of a marriage.

Rebecca Steinfeld and Charles Keidan, from London, challenged a ruling that they could not have a civil partnership because they did not meet the legal requirement of being the same sex.

Speaking afterwards, they said there was still "everything to fight for" and that they intended to appeal to the Supreme Court.
