Abu Qatada statement from Theresa May expected

Theresa May will make a statement to MPs later about the fight to deport Abu Qatada, after the Appeal Court refused to refer his case to the Supreme Court. 

Mrs May wanted the UK's top court to reverse a lower court's ruling that he could face an unfair trial if deported to Jordan to face terror charges.

The home secretary has met the PM and the justice secretary to discuss the next move in the cleric's case.
Mrs May will now seek permission for a direct appeal to the Supreme Court.
