O'Dwyer: Extradition 'pretty ridiculous'

Sheffield student Richard O'Dwyer speaks to the BBC after Home Secretary Theresa May approved his extradition to the US.

Home Secretary Theresa May has approved the extradition to the US of a student accused of copyright infringement.

The US authorities say 23-year-old Sheffield student Richard O'Dwyer's TVShack website hosted links to pirated films and television programmes.

A spokesman said Mrs May had "carefully considered all relevant matters" before signing the order.

Mr O'Dwyer told the BBC's Newsbeat "I've done nothing wrong under UK law... it's pretty ridiculous".
