Ballots are being counted in the Republic of Ireland, where voters have been taking part in a referendum on whether to legalise same-sex marriage.

More than 3.2m people were asked whether they wanted to amend the country's constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry and polling stations reported an "unusually high" turnout.
