A Christian nurse who lost her discrimination-at-work case at the European Court of Human Rights has said she plans to appeal.

Shirley Chaplin, 57, from Exeter, took her case to the Strasbourg court in September last year after being told in 2009, after a 30-year career on the wards at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital, she could no longer wear a crucifix around her neck.

The court ruled that her rights had not been violated under the European Convention on Human Rights.
