Shrien Dewani ruling: 'Not the end of the legal process'

Shrien Dewani, who is accused of organising the murder of his wife Anni in South Africa, can be extradited to the country, the High Court has ruled.

Lawyers for Mr Dewani, who has post-traumatic stress disorder, argued he should not be sent there until he was fit to plead over the 2010 killing.

But judges ruled he can be extradited as long as the South African government pledges to return him to the UK should he ultimately prove unfit to be tried.

Angus Crawford reports.
