Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange has been arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. The Met Police said he was arrested for failing to surrender to the court and following a US extradition request.

UK foreign minister Sir Alan Duncan said the arrest followed 'extensive dialogue between our two countries.'
