A legal challenge against a ban on gay and unmarried couples being able to adopt has been adjourned until March.

The case has been brought by the NI Human Rights Commission which is seeking to win a legislative change.

It was revealed in court on Wednesday that a ban included within Stormont legislation was intentional and not a mistake.

Mr Justice Treacy granted the adjournment to allow the commission’s lawyers time to study the legislation, BBC reports.
