CAPITALS — Russian diplomats and their families are preparing to leave the UK after being repatriated over the Salisbury spy attack.

Removal vans and diplomatic cars have been leaving the embassy in London.

The UK expelled 23 diplomats after Prime Minister Theresa May said Russia was "culpable" for the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

Later on Tuesday, the government will decide whether to impose further sanctions on Russia.

Mrs May is chairing a meeting of the National Security Council.
