Liam Adams, the brother of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams, has lost his appeal to be extradited to Northern Ireland where he is wanted for charges of sexually assaulting his daughter.

Adams, 56, will face 18 charges - including rape, indecent assault and gross indecency - when he is extradited from the Irish Republic where he has been living.

The charges date from March 1977 and March 1983, when his daughter, Aine Tyrell, was aged between four and 10.

Tyrell has waived her rights to anonymity.
