    The UK will expel 23 Russian diplomats over the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia. 

    Theresa May said on Tuesday that a deadline issued on Monday for Moscow to provide an explanation for how a Russia-made nerve agent had ended up in Salisbury was met with “complete disdain”. 

    May said an invitation to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to visit the UK has been withdrawn.

    The Russian diplomats were given one week to leave the UK.
