The case of computer hacker Gary McKinnon returns to the High Court today.

The hearing follows his refusal last week to undergo further medical tests by a Home Office-appointed expert as he fights extradition to the United States.

The US authorities want McKinnon, from Wood Green, north London, to face trial for hacking into military computers 10 years ago.
