Conservative MP Peter Bone has told Daybreak that he believes Abu Qatada should be deported.

He said: "Our supreme court said he should go, my argument is that if the supreme court said he should go, he should go."

Disagreeing with Mr Bone, human rights lawyer David Enright said: "It's a terribly dangerous thing when a senior politician like yourself, and Theresa May, denigrate judges, denigrate the rule of law and denigrate the justice system."

He added: "That is the only thing that separates us from terrorists."
