Cooper: May's Qatada strategy has gone 'very badly wrong'

Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper has told Daybreak her Government counterpart Theresa May was "absolutely right to appeal" Abu Qatada's bail ruling.

But she said the Home Secretary's legal strategy to get the terror suspect deported had gone "very badly wrong."

Everyone will be horrified by (Qatada's release) because Theresa May told us in April that he would be deported, it was all on track ... that she had a legal strategy that she was confident in and it's all gone very badly wrong.

And I am very worried because everybody wants to see Abu Qatada on a plane not walking Britain's streets. It does look as if this legal strategy hasn't worked. And I think a lot more needs to be done now.

– Yvette Cooper
