The world's first openly gay bishop, whose ordination caused a split in the Anglican church, is visiting the UK.

Gene Robinson, the Bishop of New Hampshire, has been excluded from the Lambeth conference of church leaders.

Speaking alongside actor Sir Ian McKellen, Bishop Robinson told the BBC's Andrew Marr why he was still determined to attend.
