As the news spread, the WikiLeaks official Twitter account reacted furiously, labelling the British press "retards" and claiming that the pizza had "no doubt [been] ordered by a UK 'journalist' down on his luck".

The Met Police, who announced they would stop guarding the embassy, with reports suggesting it had cost the taxpayer somewhere in the region of £12m, issued this statement on Monday:
While the MPS remains committed to executing the arrest warrant and presenting Julian Assange before the court, it is only right that the policing operation to achieve this is continually reviewed against the diplomatic and legal efforts to resolve the situation.
As a result of this continual review the MPS has today withdrawn the physical presence of officers from outside the embassy.
