British lawmakers voted in favour of legislation allowing gay marriage on Tuesday despite a split in Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative party.

Members of parliament voted by 400 to 175 to approve the draft law allowing same-sex couples to marry in England and Wales, which Cameron had said would "make our society stronger".
