from Sputnik News:

LONDON (Sputnik) – The BBC editor, Mark Urban, who wrote “The Skripal Files” book about Russian ex-intelligence officer Sergei Skripal, said that the poisoning of the former Russian spy agent in the UK city of Salisbury was bad for the UK security and intelligence services.

Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in Salisbury and were hospitalized on March 4. The UK authorities said that the Skripals were poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent. London claimed that Russia had orchestrated the poisoning. Russia has categorically denied these allegations noting, that the United Kingdom had not provided any evidence to substantiate its claims.
