Call for overhaul of extradition rules

A damning report has called for dramatic changes to the extradition treaty that Britain has with the United States.

It is the agreement that recently saw Christopher Tappin flown to America for trial and could yet see Gary McKinnon tried in the States.

A parliamentary committee claims public confidence in the current treaty has been "shattered" and there are now calls for judges to decide if suspects should be extradited.

For families currently affected by the treaty, the new suggestions are welcome - as Ronke Phillips reports.
