US extradition: 'Laws and procedures have been followed'

A Briton being extradited to the US for allegedly selling batteries for Iranian missiles described his treatment as "a disgrace" as he arrived at Heathrow Airport.

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

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that laws and procedures have been followed in Mr Tappin's extradition.

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