London, March 23 (ANI): A British gay couple have complained to the police after being turned away by owners of a guest house because of their sexuality.

Michael Black and John Morgan, from Brampton, Cambridgeshire, booked a double room at the Swiss Bed and Breakfast in Cookham, Berkshire.

The website for the Swiss B and B promises a 'warm and friendly welcome' but owners Susanne and Mike Wilkinson refused to let them stay.

"We said we'd booked a double room and she then said 'It goes against my convictions to have two men sharing'," Sky News quoted Black as saying.

The couple had booked the Zurich room at the property on the Internet.

When they informed the owners, it was illegal to turn them away on the grounds of their sexuality, they claim she said that because the property was her private home she was not breaking the law.

The Wilkinsons said: "We turned them away because we have a Christian faith and for us to allow people to engage in homosexual activity within our house would go against our faith."

After getting a refund, the two men made an official complaint to the police. (ANI)
