  • A swarm of police officers walk down the side street of the Ecuadorian embassy, close to the balcony where Assange was due to give his speech, to ensure the rights of the diplomatic status-held building remains intact, and that protesters and members of the public do not get too close to the building.

  • Members of the media mark out where their cameras should go in order to get the best view of the Wikileaks founder, who emerged just after 2 p.m. BST (9 a.m. ET) in central London.

  • One foreign journalist clashed with police in order to get closer to the embassy. The confrontation was short-lived, and no arrests were made.
