Scotland Yard said it was invited into the embassy by the ambassador, following the Ecuadorian government’s withdrawal of asylum.

Mr Assange would remain in custody at a central London police station, before appearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court “as soon as is possible”, the statement added.

The British Home Secretary Mr Sajid Javid confirmed the arrested of Mr Assange on social media, saying: “Nearly 7 yearrs after entering the Ecuadorean Embassy, I can confirm Julian Assange is now in police custody and rightly facing justice in the UK.”

“I would like to thank Ecuador for its cooperation and the Metrpolitan Police for its professionalism. No one is above the law.”
