Richard Page: I was doing my legal requirement - what was best for the child

Christian Legal Centre client Richard Page speaks to BBC South East about challenging his removal from an NHS Trust, for expressing that a child should be raised by a mother and father.

Richard, who had served for 15 years as a Justice of the Peace, had expressed this view during a closed-door consultation in an adoption case. He was disciplined, suspended and eventually dismissed from the Magistracy by the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice.

He was then also removed from his position as a non-executive director on an NHS Trust.

Richard told BBC South East: "I was doing my legal requirement - what was best for the child."
