Richard O'Dwyer responds after extradition agreed

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".
