Emmanuel Macron has said he will unveil measures against Russia in response to the poisoning of the former spy Sergei Skripal on British soil in the coming days.

The French president spoke with Theresa May on the phone on Thursday morning about “progress of the investigation” in the the nerve agent attack, which the British Government says was carried out by Russia.

The apparent about-face comes after a muted response from France, with one spokesperson having said yesterday the country would wait until the “elements are proven” instead of relying on “fantasy politics”.
