Tappin bail bond set at $1 million

65-year-old Christopher Tappin from Orpington will be released from the Otero County detention centre in New Mexico either tomorrow or Wednesday, his US lawyer Kent Schaffer said.

Judge David Briones set the bond at one million US dollars (approx £620,500) and Tappin's family must pay $50,000 (approx £31,000) before he can be released, documents filed at the US district court in the Western District of Texas show.
