Yulia Skripal discharged from hospital

Yulia Skripal, the daughter of former Russian spy targetted in the Salisbury nerve agent attack, has been discharged from hospital. Ms Skripal, who was made a rapid recovery in recent days, was discharged on Monday and taken to a secure location.

Christine Blanshard, deputy chief executive and medical director at Salisbury District Hospital, said the Skripals had been responding well to treatment and added that the nerve agents cause hallucinations and sickness. Following “round-the-clock” car, Yulia Skripal is no longer in a critical condition. 

Mr Skripal is thought to be making good progress and is expected to be discharged in due course. 

The Russian Embassy tweeted congratulations to Ms Skripal on her recovery, but said it needed “urgent proof” that  “what is being done to her is done on her own free will.”
