Hotel broke law in gay couple snub


Gay couple Steven Preddy (left) and Martyn Hall have been awarded damages after a hotel refused to give them a double room

Christian hotel owners who refused a gay couple a double room acted unlawfully, a judge has ruled.

Peter and Hazelmary Bull were breaking the law when they denied Martyn Hall and his civil partner Steven Preddy a room at their hotel in Cornwall in September 2008.

Judge Andrew Rutherford made the ruling in a written judgment at Bristol County Court as he awarded the couple £1,800 each in damages.
