Former X-Factor contestant Lucy Spraggan has spoken to BBC Radio Derby about government plans to legalise gay marriage.

Miss Spraggan, singer and Buxton resident, tweeted she was disappointed her local MP Andrew Bingham had voted against the proposals.

"I believe everyone should be entitled to have the same rights, purely because that is what equality is about," she said.
