The editor of The Guardian has called the questioning of David Miranda "suspicious".

Speaking to the BBC, Alan Rusbridger said: "l think it is suspicious that he was stopped at Heathrow, because the terrorism act is supposed to be used in a random way."

Mr Rusbridger also revealed that Mr Miranda will be taking legal action to prevent the police from examining the electronic gadgets seized, as the Home Office defends his detention.
