Police to investigate rendition claims

British police are to investigate claims that UK secret services helped in the rendition of men to Libya.

Two Libyans who were part of the anti-Gaddafi movement are threatening to sue the UK over their transfer to Libya and subsequent torture.

The new investigations may delay a government inquiry into rendition.

The Metropolitan Police and Crown Prosecution Service has said MI5 and MI6 officers will not be charged over separate torture collusion claims.

Gordon Corera reports.
