A heterosexual couple have lost their Court of Appeal battle for the right to enter into a civil partnership instead of a marriage.

Rebecca Steinfeld and Charles Keidan, from London, challenged a ruling that they could not have a civil partnership because they did not meet the legal requirement of being the same sex.

The couple had argued that this meant they faced discrimination.

But the Court of Appeal dismissed their challenge.
