Paul Dunham, who faces extradition to America with his wife Sandra, has told BBC Radio Northampton's Breakfast Show presenter Stuart Linnell that the couple tried to take their own lives rather than face extradition to the USA.

Paul Dunham called Stuart from hospital to admit their suicide attempt. Days before they were due to be extradited, Paul had told Stuart that they were seriously considering taking their own lives.
