Radical cleric Abu Qatada held for deportation

Radical cleric Abu Qatada has been arrested ahead of fresh deportation proceedings, the Home Office has said.

In a statement to the Commons, Theresa May said he could now be removed from the UK "in full compliance of law".

The European Court of Human Rights blocked his deportation to Jordan in January, saying evidence obtained by torture might be used against him.
