Christopher Tappin: "I want to be tried in a British court"

A man facing extradition to the US on Friday for allegedly trying to sell batteries for Iranian missiles says he has been "let down" by British justice.

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

Mr Tappin, 65, from London, has been ordered to go to Heathrow Airport, where US marshals will escort him to America.

British judges say the extradition is lawful and the European Court of Human Rights has refused to intervene.
