At a High Court hearing which began on Wednesday, senior judges were told that Lauri Love, who has Asperger syndrome, was at severe risk of committing suicide if extradited.

Concluding Thursday's much shorter hearing, the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Burnett of Maldon, said he and Mr Justice Ouseley reserved their judgments and would "take our time" to consider whether Mr Love, a 32-year-old with autism and depression, should face trial in the US.

Their considerations will set the precedent for how courts interpret a legal protection against extradition called the "forum bar" which was introduced by Theresa May in 2013 after she blocked the extradition of Gary McKinnon; also an alleged hacker with Asperger syndrome.
