Mafia boss Domenico Rancadore rearrested in London

A convicted Mafia boss has been remanded in custody after being rearrested over his connections to the criminal network.

Domenico Rancadore, 65, was held in west London after a fresh European Arrest Warrant was received from Italy.

He had been allowed to stay in the UK after winning an extradition battle last month following a similar warrant.

He appeared in court where his lawyer described the arrest as an "abuse of process". Rancadore was refused bail.

The BBC's Martine Croxall and Sophie Hutchinson report.
