David Cameron: 'We will deport Abu Qatada'

Prime Minister David Cameron has vowed that radical cleric Abu Qatada will be deported from the UK to face trial in Jordan "however long it takes, however many difficulties there are along the way".

The deportation process is now on hold after Mr Qatada's lawyers launched a fresh bid to refer the case to the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights.

The Home Office believed that the three-month deadline for an appeal had passed, but the ECHR has since said that it was submitted in time.
