The UK will expel 23 Russian diplomats who have been identified as undeclared intelligence officers as part of its response to the Salisbury spy poisoning, Theresa May has said.

The Prime Minister set out a number of retaliatory measures against Moscow after she said that there was “no alternative conclusion other than that the Russian State was culpable for the attempted murder”...

Prime Minister Theresa May says the Russian state was culpable in the nerve agent attack in Salisbury on former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia and is expelling 23 diplomats.

"All who been identified as undeclared intelligence officers. They have just one week to leave," she says.

"This will be the single biggest expulsion for over 30 years and it will reflect the fact that this is not the first time the Russian state has acted against our country."

She says Russia's response "has shown complete disdain for the gravity of these events" and the country has offered no explanation for the Russian-made novichok nerve agent used in the attack.

The PM says the matter has been treated with "sarcasm, contempt and defiance".

"It must be met with a full and robust response," she says.

"We've agreed immediate actions to dismantle the Russian espionage network in the UK."

She says no ministers or members of the Royal Family will be attending this summer's World Cup.

Russia says in a statement: "On 14 of March Russian Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko was summoned to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office where he was informed that 23 diplomats were declared personae non gratae.

"We consider this hostile action as totally unacceptable, unjustified and shortsighted.

"All the responsibility for the deterioration of the Russia-UK relationship lies with the current political leadership of Britain."
