Britain advises people to wash belongings after nerve agent attack

British media reported Sunday that traces of the nerve agent used to attack a Russian ex-spy and his daughter have been found in Salisbury where the two were poisoned. "This is a painstaking, detailed investigation and the police need to be given the space and time to get on with it", the BBC quoted Rudd as saying.

"It is still very serious for the two people who were indeed the subject of this outrageous attack", Ms Rudd said, adding Britain needed to determine the source of the nerve agent. "Over time, repeated skin contact with contaminated items may pose a small risk to health".

The father and daughter, believed by authorities to have been deliberately targeted, were found slumped on a bench near a shopping center on Sunday afternoon.

More than 250 counter-terrorism police are involved in the investigation, which has yielded 200 pieces of evidence so far and more than 240 witnesses, according to the police.

Meanwhile officials wearing biohazard protective suits were seen working alongside police officers at the London Road Cemetery, where Skripal's wife and son were laid to rest. Firstly, Russian diplomats in the UK, including the ambassador, should be slung out of the country.

We understand you may be concerned about possible health risks and this leaflet is designed to provide you with advice.

It has already been accused of emboldening Russia with a "weak" reaction to the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko, who had radioactive polonium slipped into his tea at a London hotel in 2006.

It also said to "wipe personal items such as phones, handbags and other electronic items with cleansing or baby wipes and dispose of the wipes in the bin".

"We have now learned that there has been some trace contamination by the nerve agent in both The Mill pub and Zizzi restaurant in Salisbury", England's chief medical officer, Sally Davies, told reporters Sunday.

"There are lots of things that the United Kingdom can do", Mr Wallace added. Officials still say the risk is low as investigators in hazard gear combed key sites for clues.

Police have extended the cordons in Salisbury city centre, and also sealed off part of a business park in nearby Amesbury.

"I am confident this has not harmed the health of anyone who was in The Mill pub or Zizzi's".

The figure includes members of the public and emergency staff, some of whom have had blood tests as well as receiving support and advice.

"Does the West needs proof to blame Russia?" British police say that more than 20 people in total were injured in the alleged attack, which has been described by authorities as "attempted murder".

Vladimir Putin has railed against similar legislation introduced in other countries, even imposing a retaliatory ban on American adoptions of Russian children after Barack Obama introduced the US version of the legislation.

Skripal was imprisoned inside Russia until he was freed in a 2010 spy swap and settled in England.

He paid tribute to the police officer who went to the Skripals' aid as 'someone who is doing their public duty, keeping Britain safe and has become a victim of this dreadful, dreadful attack'.
