Midnight partygoers celebrate gay marriage laws in Belfast

There was a countdown-to-midnight celebration in Northern Ireland after a landmark law change came into force on October 22 paving the way for same-sex marriage.

Usually, the Northern Ireland's devolved government would decide the law themselves but the assembly at Stormont has not met for more than 1,000 days.

Members of the assembly have voted five times on whether or not to introduce same-sex marriage.

During the most recent vote in November 2015, politicians there voted to support same sex marriage for the first time, with a narrow majority of 53 votes to 52.
