Jeremy Hunt: Assange can leave Ecuadorian embassy 'whenever he wants'

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt says that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is a "free man" and can leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London "whenever he wants to".

Mr Hunt was speaking at RAF Northolt after a senior Ecuadorian official said no decision has been made to expel Assange from the country's London embassy despite tweets from WikiLeaks that sources had said he could be kicked out within "hours to days".
