Judge rules Assange should be extradited to Sweden

The founder of the Wikileaks website, Julian Assange, has lost his latest legal battle against extradition to Sweden to face questioning over sex offence allegations.

District Judge Howard Riddle said the extradition would not breach Mr Assange's human rights.

Mr Assange says he will appeal against the ruling. He believes the claims are politically motivated because of his Wikileaks' work.

Tom Symonds reports.
