The Supreme Court rules against the Marazion B&B owners who refused a gay couple a double room.

Peter and Hazelmary Bull argued they did not want Martin Hall and civil partner Steven Preddy to stay at the Chymorvah because of their Christian beliefs.

Now they have lost their fight, after an earlier ruling they acted unlawfully.

Speaking outside court Hazelmary said: "We're just ordinary Christians who believe in the importance of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Our B&B is not just our business but it is also our home. All we have ever tried to do is to live according to our own values under our own roof. These beliefs are not based on hostility to anyone. We certainly bear no ill to Steven and Martin. Our policy is based on our sincere beliefs about marriage"
