Boris Johnson claims Russia is stockpiling substance used in Skripal attack

We don’t yet know whether the Salisbury attack had any impact on the re-election of Vladimir Putin but we do know that the temperature between Moscow and London keeps getting chillier.

Today the Foreign Secretary claimed that Russia has been investigating ways of using nerve agents for assassination for the last decade.

Boris Johnson also said there is evidence that Russia has been stockpiling Novichok, the substance used to attack former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury. Paul McNamara reports.
