We discovered what the the poison was and we now know how to mitigate it's
Russian former spy Sergei Skripal is no longer in a critical condition after
being poisoned by a nerve agent, doctors have said.
Salisbury District Hospital said Mr Skripal is responding well to treatment
and "improving rapidly".
Mr Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, have been in hospital for more
than a month after being found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury.
They had been poisoned with a toxic nerve agent called Novichok.
Ms Skripal is conscious and talking in hospital.
The UK government claims Russia is behind the attack but Moscow has denied
all involvement, calling the accusations "horrific and unsubstantiated".
