More Anglicans in England support gay and lesbian couples marrying than oppose it, a poll has suggested for the first time.
Of more than 1,500 Anglicans polled, 45% said same-sex marriage was right while 37% thought it was wrong.
The Yougov poll also indicates a large increase in support of same-sex marriage over the past three years.
The Church of England’s official stance is that marriage can be only between a man and a woman.
Three years ago, a similar YouGov poll found 38% of Anglicans in support and 47% believing same-sex marriage to be wrong.
