A lawyer for the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, has said she was stopped at Heathrow airport and told she was on a watch list requiring official approval before she could return to her native Australia.
Jennifer Robinson said a member of airport security told her she “must have done something controversial” and that they would have to contact the Australian high commission in London before letting her on her flight.
