European human rights judges have blocked more than 900 attempts by Britain to deport foreign criminals and terror suspects in recent years.It would help the Telegraph's case though, or indeed its diminishing credibility, if they showed the right building as the picture.

The controversial “Rule 39” procedure was recently used by judges in Strasbourg to prevent Abu Qatada, the extremist cleric, being sent back to Jordan in case evidence obtained under torture was used against him.
It has also been used by Somali criminals and failed Tamil asylum seekers to remain in the country. The new figures disclosed in Parliament have renewed calls for the Government to pull out of the court and so ensure that British court rulings are upheld.
