Lib Dem donor Michael Brown to be extradited to UK

Officials in the Dominican Republic say the convicted fraudster, Michael Brown - who was once a major donor to the Liberal Democrats - is being extradited to Britain.

In 2008, Brown - who had gone on the run in the Caribbean island - was jailed in his absence for seven years for stealing £36m from clients after posing as a bond dealer.

He is understood to be on a flight to Madrid where he is expected to be handed over to the British authorities.
