Church of England General Synod divided on gay marriages

The Church of England's General Synod will debate gay "marriages" after 100 priests have signed a letter demanding the right to conduct them in their churches.

Giles Dilnot spoke to Konditor & Cook managing director Paul Cons, Stonewall chief executive Ben Summerskill and Conservative MP Stuart Andrew.
