A member of the Church of Scientology has launched a High Court battle for the right to marry in a Scientology chapel in central London.

Louisa Hodkin, 23, is challenging a refusal of the registrar general of births, deaths and marriages in England and Wales to register the chapel for the solemnisation of marriages on the grounds that it is not 'a place of meeting for religious worship'.

A judge heard Ms Hodkin wants to marry a fellow Scientologist at the church's chapel on the ground floor of its premises in Queen Victoria Street.
