Experts have identified substance in suspected poisoning, Rudd suggests

Experts have identified the substance involved in the suspected poisoning of the former Russian agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter on Sunday, the home secretary, Amber Rudd, has suggested.

Speaking after chairing a meeting of the government’s emergency Cobra committee to discuss the incident, Rudd said: “We do know more about the substance and the police will be making a further statement this afternoon in order to share some of that.”

In a pooled TV interview, she added: “I would like to reassure the public that we have the ability and the wherewithal and the knowledge to keep them completely safe.”

Rudd also cautioned against speculation over the case. “We need to make sure that the police and the other services have the space to continue that investigation. We need to keep a cool head and make sure that we collect all the evidence we can.
