In 2010 there were five people extradited from the US to the UK; and of these there was one US national.

In 2010 there were 12 people extradited from the UK to the US; 10 of these were extradited under the 2003 Extradition Act and two under the 1989 Extradition Act. Of these 12 there were three UK nationals, one dual British/Pakistani national and one dual British/Polish national. For the purposes of the question, we have taken the “UK” as meaning England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Scotland deals with its own US cases.
