The British cyber-security researcher who stalled WannaCry cyber-attack that hit the National Health Service (NHS) has been arrested and charged in a US cyber-crime case.

Marcus Hutchins, 23, has been accused of involvement with Kronos - a separate piece of malware used to steal banking logins from victims' computers.

Fellow cyber-security researchers have expressed surprise at the indictment.

The UK's National Cyber Security Centre has said that it was aware of the situation.
