A Suffolk man who has autism will be extradited from Britain to the US to stand trial over charges of cyber-hacking.

Lauri Love, who's 31 and from Stradishall near Haverhill, is alleged to have stolen huge amounts of data from US agencies including the federal Reserve, Nasa and the FBI.

Mr Love has said he holds little hope of justice and suggested a jail term in the US could cause his health to deteriorate and would lead to a mental breakdown or suicide.

He and his family wanted him to face justice in the UK rather than the US.

But this afternoon a judge has ruled Mr Love should be extradited

Amazon tests delivering parcels using unmanned drones

Video report by ITV News Anglia's Emily Knight.

A new way of delivering parcels is being tested by Amazon in Cambridgeshire, using unmanned drones.

The company has issued a notice warning to people in the area that the flying machines will be operating between now and October.

If the trials are successful, the company could begin using the drones for its deliveries within 30 minutes of its warehouses.

Terry Hollywood from Cambridge Aeroclub has concerns about safety with fears of an aircraft collision with a drone.

"I've personally seen a drone pass by my aeroplane while I was flying at 3,000 feet about three weeks ago, two or three days ago one of my instructors saw one at 2,000 feet, so there is a discipline issue and there is a control issue."

Cambridge campaigners vow to protect city's international reputation after Brexit

Video report from ITV Anglia's Matthew Hudson.

A new group has come together in Cambridge to press for the city's place in high tech research and development to be maintained after Britain withdraws from the EU.

The Cambridge Declaration includes leaders from politics, business and academia - many of whom were prominent Remain campaigners. They're particularly concerned that the skilled foreign workers the city relies on should still be made welcome.

It comes as the Northamptonshire MP Andrea Leadsom, who's in the race to become the next Prime Minister, says Brexit should be seen as an opportunity for businesses.

6 in 10 Northamptonshire businesses victims of cyber crime

Six out of ten Northamptonshire firms have been victims of cyber crime - that's according to a report from the Federation of Small Businesses.

The figures show that on average they've been hacked on four occasions, costing each business almost £3,000.

The FSB said small firms are unfairly carrying the cost of cyber crime.

Small firms take their cyber security responsibility very seriously, but often they are the least able to bear the cost of doing so.

Smaller businesses have limited resources, time and expertise to deal with ever-evolving and increasing digital attacks.

We're calling on Government, larger businesses, individuals and providers to take part in a joint effort to tackle cyber crime and improve business resilience, and have created this event to help that.
