Bexley MPs take part in historic gay marriage vote

PUBLISHED: 09:45 06 February 2013 | UPDATED: 09:45 06 February 2013

Bexley MPs took part in a historic vote in Parliament yesterday which could see gay people afforded the right to marry.

Only Bexleyheath and Crayford member David Evennett voted against the Bill, with Old Bexley and Sidcup MP James Brokenshire and Erith and Thamesmead MP Teresa Pearce in favour of it.

Over 130 Tory MPs rebelled against David Cameron who has propelled the vote forward but with support from Labour and the Lib Dems, it looks likely to become law.
