Blood samples now being taken from Sergei and Yulia Skripal as pair still fight for life in Salisbury District Hospital.

The former Russian spy and his daughter poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury remain critically ill.

Sergei and Yulia Skripal are still in intensive care in Salisbury District Hospital, 18 days after they were found in the Maltings.

The 66 year old double agent is not responding in any way whilst his 33 year old daughter has minimal response.

Those details were released as a judge today (22nd March) gave permission for blood samples to be taken from the pair and tested by chemical weapons experts.

Meanwhile the police officer, Nick Bailey, who was caught up in the spy attack, has now been released from hospital after almost three weeks and is back home in Alderholt with his wife and children.

An emotional statement from Detective Sergeant Bailey was read outside our hospital by the chief constable of Wiltshire Police.
