May's spokesman said May had briefed U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday evening. US Ambassador to Britain Woody Johnson said on Twitter the United States stood with Britain in holding Russia accountable for its "act of aggression". Britain will update the U.N. Security Council at a meeting on Thursday.

Security cameras filmed the suspects near Skripal's house, and traces of Novichok were found in their London hotel room.

A woman near Salisbury, Dawn Sturgess, died in July and her partner Charlie Rowley fell ill after Rowley found a counterfeit bottle of Nina Ricci perfume in a charity collection box and brought it home. It contained Novichok. Basu said police had no doubt the events were linked, and were discussing charges over the Sturgess and Rowley case with prosecutors.
