    A Christian couple awarded £10,000 after being questioned by police about their views on homosexuality have spoken of their victory.

    Helen and Joe Roberts, of Fleetwood, Lancashire, were questioned after they tried to display Christian literature next to gay rights' leaflets.

    Retired carpenter Mr Roberts, 74, said he and his wife were absolutely elated about the out-of-court settlement.

    "A trial date had been set for January, but in a joint statement, the police and council said they had come to an agreement regarding the claim and said they had apologised to the couple for "the way the incident was handled".

    They also said policies had been revised to protect all parties. "



    No "protection" of anything but freedom is needed.
