A judge has ruled that a Christian-run bakery discriminated against a gay customer by refusing to make a cake with a pro-gay marriage slogan.
Ashers Baking Company, based in County Antrim, was taken to court by gay rights activist Gareth Lee.
A Belfast judge said, as a business, Ashers was not exempt from discrimination law.
The firm’s general manager said they were “extremely disappointed” by the ruling and are considering an appeal.
Damages of Â£500 were agreed in advance by legal teams on both sides of the dispute.
