Malta has topped a league of countries offering the best rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people in Europe.

The league, produced by human rights body ILGA Europe, measures every country in Europe against a number of factors, including legal representation, protection and policy for LGBTI people.

Malta has made significant progress on its LGBTI laws in recent years and has the best legal recognition of intersex people in the world.

Scotland remains the best place in the UK for LGBTI people, although there is still significant progress to be made in Northern Ireland, which pulls down the overall UK score in the league.
