Scientology couple: We are 'finally being treated equally'

A woman who wants to marry in a Church of Scientology chapel has won her Supreme Court challenge.

Five Supreme Court judges ruled the church was a "place of meeting for religious worship".

Louisa Hodkin launched legal action after officials refused to register a Church of Scientology chapel in central London as a place for marriage.

Ms Hodkin and her fiance Alessandro Calcioli told the BBC they were "ecstatic" following the ruling.
