Dad fears for son's life after extradition decision

The father of hacking suspect Lauri Love has said he believes his son will commit suicide if he is extradited to the United States.

The Rev Alexander Love, from Stradishall near Newmarket, told ITV Anglia: "I sat with him one day and said 'Lauri, what are you going to do if all else fails and they're going to take you?' and he said 'Dad, I won't be going. I'm not leaving you and Mum.'

"He's a 31-year-old genius and he lives in what I call the old folks' home with us because that's how he copes with life."
