Missile suspect Tappin due in court

The Attorney General, Dominic Grieve, has admitted there are 'underlying fundamental problems' with the UK's extradition agreement with the United States after a British man was sent to Texas accused of selling missile parts to Iran.

Retired businessman Christopher Tappin is facing a possible 35 year sentence, but says he is the victim of entrapment.

He's due to appear in a US court on Tuesday after losing his two-year battle against being sent to America.

His son Neil Tappin says the level of information since he left the UK has been dreadful.
