The General Assembly of the Church of Scotland has voted to allow its ministers to enter same-sex marriages and continue serving.

The vote by the Presbyterian denomination, better known as the Kirk, comes on the first day of a meeting of its governing body.

The BBC reports that clergy will, however, not be allowed to conduct same-sex wedding ceremonies within the church, although the assembly has commissioned a report into whether they should be permitted.
