NBC and ABC said Maxwell, the daughter of late newspaper baron Robert Maxwell, was detained in New Hampshire and is due to appear in court there later in the day.

Epstein hanged himself in a New York cell in August last year while awaiting trial on charges of trafficking minors for sex and US prosecutors are investigating whether he had any accomplices.
