British businessman extradited to US

Retired businessman Christopher Tappin has been extradited to the US for allegedly selling batteries for Iranian missiles.

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

His Lawyer Karen Todner said he would be wearing an orange jumpsuit and handcuffs after arriving in the US and will remain in custody until at least Thursday.
