British government scientists have reportedly concluded “beyond reasonable doubt” that the nerve agent used to poison ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia last week was made in Russia.

Specialists at Porton Down, the Ministry of Defence’s chemical warfare lab, reached the conclusion last night, according to The Daily Telegraph newspaper.

Tests carried out on Sunday proved “beyond reasonable doubt” that Russia made the chemical used in the attempted murder on March 4.

The compound’s identity has yet to be made public.
