Stormont legalises abortion and same-sex marriage

A last-minute attempt to stop the decriminalisation of same-sex marriage and abortion in Northern Ireland was blocked meaning they’ll be legal in the country for the first time.

Assembly members returned to Stormont – in a symbolic sitting – for the first time in two and a half years.

MPs in Westminster passed legislation earlier this year requiring the changes if devolution wasn’t restored.
