Should Abu Hamza be allowed to wear his prosthetic hook?

The Muslim cleric Abu Hamza made his first court appearance in New York on Sunday.

He was extradited from the UK last week to face terrorism charges.

The US authorities confiscated his hook, despite his lawyer saying he needed it to "function in a civilised manner".

Rob Mannion uses a similar prosthetic to Mr Hamza and told Radio 5 live's Stephen Nolan that he was shocked that he was not allowed to wear it.
