'Gay cake' case: Daniel McArthur speaks ahead of appeal ruling

A judge's ruling on an appeal by a bakery which was found to have "unlawfully discriminated" against a gay man will be made public shortly.

Two years ago, the family-run firm refused to make a cake for gay rights activist, Gareth Lee with the slogan "Support Gay Marriage".

The judge ruled the Christian owners of Ashers had discriminated against him. The family firm then appealed.

The bakery's Christian boss says he hoped the appeal case would protect "freedom of conscience".

Daniel McArthur of Ashers said this was "never about the customer".
