Video: Cyber security expert Marcus Hutchins denies US charges

The lawyer for Marcus Hutchins, the cyber expert who thwarted a global ransomware attack, says he denies charges brought against him in the US.

Adrian Lobo says the 23-year-old will plead not guilty to six counts of creating and sharing the malware known as Kronos.

Hutchins, who found a "kill-switch" that derailed the attack that crippled the NHS in May, was granted bail under strict conditions that he pay 30,000 dollars (£23,000) and remain in the US.
