Newport MP Paul Flynn has written to the home secretary demanding to know why a violent gang leader has been relocated to the city.

Mr Flynn says there is "deep outrage" that Joland Giwa, who ran a street gang in south London, has been ordered by a court to stay at a hostel in Newport.

The Home Office said it opposed his bail and want him deported.
