Gay pension rules 'unfair and absurd'

Gay pensioner John Walker is fighting to win his husband the same pension rights a wife would enjoy if he was in a heterosexual relationship.
He has been in a same-sex relationship with his partner for 23 years and wants to ensure that, should he die first, his husband will be adequately provided for.
Mr Walker appeared on the Victoria Derbyshire programme in his first broadcast interview, alongside his solicitor James Welch.
