British PM gets involved in 'gay' cake row in the North

The British Prime Minister David Cameron has told MPs in the House of Commons that tolerance towards people of a different sexuality is an important part of being British.

Mr Cameron was responding to a question from the DUP's Gregory Campbell about the row involving the County Antrim bakery, Ashers.

The Christian-run bakery refused a customer's request to make a cake with a slogan supporting gay marriage.

Mr Campbell wants to see a conscience clause in equality legislation.

He raised the issue during Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons.
