A couple from Northampton say they could be driven to suicide if they are extradited to the US.

Paul and Sandra Dunham are accused of embezzling more than $1m by a former employer.

Although they wish to clear their names in court, extradition laws mean they could be held separately for up to two years in prison awaiting trial.

Mr Dunham told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire: "There's a very strong likelihood that I would take my life, and knowing my wife the way I do, she just couldn't survive something like that."
