The Court of Appeal will rule today on a bid by Theresa May to overturn a decision allowing radical preacher Abu Qatada to stay in the UK.

The Home Secretary's legal team said he was a "truly dangerous" individual who escaped deportation through "errors of law".

The Special Immigration Appeals Commission decided in November that Qatada could not be removed to Jordan.
