Twenty-three Russian diplomats expelled from the UK have begun their trip home. They were ousted over the poisoning of a former Russian double agent on British soil. Around 80 diplomats and their families were due to fly out of London on Tuesday to Moscow. A small crowd gathered outside the Russian embassy, hugging and waving goodbye. Russia has denied any involvement in the nerve agent attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter.
