Russian TV airs 'Yulia Skripal phone call'
UK police have issued a statement on behalf of Russian spy Sergei Skripal's daughter, the first since the pair were poisoned by a nerve agent in March. "I woke up over a week ago now and am glad to say my strength is growing daily," the statement says. The news came hours after Russia TV aired a recording of an alleged phone conversation, which it says took place between Ms Skripal and her cousin. Ms Skripal, 33, and her father are in hospital in Salisbury after the attack. Mr Skripal, 66, remains critically ill but stable. She said she was grateful for the many messages of goodwill she had received.
