From a legal point of view how can this possibly be classed as murder before any real evidence is gathered to suggest that someone or group deliberately targeted this civilian woman who has no obvious connection with intelligence services of either Russia, UK, USA, or any other country.

Everything is pointing to an "accidental" poisoning from a receptacle or item that has connection to the original attempted murder of the ex-Russian agent and his partner in Salisbury.  This is "manslaughter" if it can ever be proved, and the CPS excepting to take on such a case! ::)

Typical media jumping to conclusions.

From my local paper.....

Counter-terrorism detectives leading the enquiry announced on Sunday night they had launched a murder probe

................and it still amazes me, given to what is suspected to have happened that they can suggest murder, not manslaughter; but still that will be the eventual charge IF they find anyone who can be held responsible.........and the CPS support charges and a court case!

...........excuse me President Putin, can you now hand over the agents of yours who attempted the first murder as we think they discarded a contaminated container or item that has caused manslaughter....................yeah, sure!! ::) ::) ::) ;)

The police will always START with a "murder" probe, and if required downgrade it to "manslaughter" once the evidence is gathered. The "murder" title gives them access to more resources :)

Thanks Entwood, I understand that bit in normal cases, but this one is very different and will continue to have MI5/6 all over it knowing (repeated again tonight) that the couple must have come into accidental contact with Novchok.  All officers and intelligence agents, with free access to all areas, will know that this was an accidental contamination and will never be a murder charge. ;)

I suppose that, when someone is killed with a military nerve agent, it starts off as murder by default, until it can be shown that it was indeed the "left overs" from the Skripal poisoning. After all, it could have been deliberate. We don't know until it is proven beyond doubt that it wasn't. Maybe the Russians picked another victim at random to cause confusion? Maybe Porton Down leaked something? Who knows at this stage? :-\

Dangerous place this England. I have managed to avoid picking up any containers (makes supermarket ready meals tricky).

I am leaving just before Trump arrives. Good luck folks  ;D

Good point. Maybe they were practising for Trump? Grassy knolls are so 1963. ;)
