a wheelchair user who was due to present himself at a Dublin garda station to be extradited to the UK was not feeling well and went back to bed, the High Court has heard.

David Warwick's extradition for breaching the terms of a UK prison release was ordered last month and he had been given bail on the basis he would turn up at Store Street Garda Station last Monday so he could be extradited by ferry.

As a result of his failure to show up, Warwick, who had been living at Quin Gardens, Quin, Co Clare, was arrested and brought before the High Court yesterday. Justice Tony Hunt ordered that he be remanded in custody until he is surrendered to the UK authorities and directed that the extradition take place no later than April 22.
