A couple from Northampton are fighting extradition to the United States.

Grandparents Paul and Sandra Dunham are facing civil and criminal charges which could see them spend years in a US prison cell if found guilty.

The couple are accused of fraudulently claiming expenses of more than $1 million while Paul worked as the Chief Executive of an electronics company.

Mr Dunham claims all of his expenses were properly accounted for and his expenses were approved by the founder of the company.

Paul says their lives could be ruined by an extradition system which allows British citizens to be sent to the U.S by American Courts.
