Police have released details saying that more people than originally thought were checked over after Sergei and Yulia Skripal were found poisoned in Salisbury.

38 people have now been seen by medical professionals in the wake of the attempted murder of Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

Originally 21 people had been seen by medics but Scotland Yard have confirmed that a further 17 people have been assessed.

Of the 38 that were seen, 34 have now been discharged with no further action.

Three people remain in intensive care - these are Sergei and Yulia Skripal and Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey.

One person is now being monitored as an outpatient through Salisbury District Hospital but is not showing signs of infection at this time. 

WITNESS APPEAL

Scotland Yard's Senior National Co-ordinator for counter-terrorism policing Neil Basu has appealed for anyone to come forward who may have seen Sergei Skripal's car between 1pm and 1.40pm on Sunday 4th March.

The police have also released a timeline of events leading up to the Skripals being found slumped on a bench in the Maltings on Sunday.

Neil Basu has said that this investigation will not be over anytime soon.

"The public are going to continue to see a great deal of police activity in and around the city, including potentially more cordons being erected. 

"Please do not be alarmed, it is necessary as part of this major investigation by the counter terrorism network.

"In truth, it may last many weeks."
