I want to take this opportunity to once again thank the staff of Salisbury District Hospital for delivering such high quality care to these patients over the last few weeks.

I am very proud both of our front-line staff and all those who support them.

Yulia Skripal and her father were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury on March 4.

The government says they were poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent and has blamed Russia, expelling diplomats who could be gathering intelligence.

Moscow denies involvement in the attack, which has sparked a diplomatic crisis between Russia and the West.
