US Supreme Court has ruled that Same-sex marriage is a legal right across America.

The ruling means that 14 states with bans on same-sex marriage will no longer be able to enforce them. Officials in some states said that marriages had to wait until procedural issues were sorted out.

States affected:

Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, most of Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas.

The first state to allow same-sex marriage was Massachusetts, which granted the right in 2004.

In 2012, the high court struck down a federal anti same-sex marriage law.
