Russian spy: Military deployed after poisoning

British government sent about 180 military personnel to Salisbury to help in the investigation into the attempted murder of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter.

The military personnel – drawn mostly from the Army, but also from the Royal Marines and RAF – are experts in chemical warfare and decontamination.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia remain in a critical condition after being exposed to a nerve agent.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd has described Sunday’s attack as “outrageous”.

Those deployed include instructors from the Defence Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Centre and the 29 Explosive Ordnance Group, who are experts in bomb disposal.

Eighteen vehicles have also been sent, BBC reported.
