High court judges have ruled that Dewani must be extradited within 28 days. He is accused of arranging his wife's murder in South Africa but his extradition has been delayed because of his mental health problems.

The Home Office told ITV West Country tonight that he had now exhausted his rights to appeal against extradition. They say the timing of his removal from Britain will be up to the South African authorities and the police.
