British police say they have arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange who has been living in the Ecuadoran embassy in London since 2012.

The police said Assange was arrested at the embassy "on a warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates' Court on 29 June 2012, for failing to surrender to the court," the police said in a statement.

"He has been taken into custody at a central London police station where he will remain, before being presented before Westminster Magistrates' Court as soon as is possible."

The arrest came after the Ecuadorian government withdrew asylum.
