Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, said he fears he will die in a US jail if David Cameron allows him to be extradited.

He claimed there was a “high chance” of him being killed inside prison in America.

Mr Assange is currently on bail facing extradition proceedings to Sweden on charges of sexual assault.

However there are reports that the US authorities are considering whether they could extradite him to stand trial for espionage over the leak of tens of thousands of diplomatic cables.

Mr Assange said that he believed that it would be “politically impossible” for the British to hand him over to the Americans if there was strong public support for him in the UK.
