A Norfolk man who put up money as part of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange's bail will have to pay £12,000.

Vaughan Smith from Ellingham Hall and eight others have been ordered to pay up after Assange took refuge at the Ecuadorian Embassy.

It means the UK Government isn't able to send him to Sweden to face questioning over sex crime allegations.
