UK businessman 'let down by UK justice'

A man who has been extradicted to the US for allegedly trying to sell batteries for Iranian missiles says he has been "let down" by British justice.

Retired business man Christopher Tappin said that he was leaving the UK feeling he had fewer rights than a terrorist.

British judges ruled that his extradition was lawful and the European Court of Human Rights refused to intervene.

The Kent man faces a possible 35-year jail sentence in Texas, but says that he is the victim of entrapment.
