Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has said that he agrees to turn himself over to the British Police if a UN panel rules he has not been unlawfully detained.

Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy since June 2012, after Swedish authorities sought his extradition. He has not been charged with any offence, but has been sought for questioning in Sweden in relation to sexual assault allegations made against by two women against him

The UN’s Working Group on Arbitrary Detention is due to announce the findings of its investigation into Mr Assange’s case on Friday
