THE second patient who remains critical in Salisbury District Hospital after a major incident has been named by the national press as the daughter of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal.

The BBC have reported that the 33-year-old woman is Yulia Skirpal, who lives in Russia but has been visiting the UK.

Her relatives say they have not been able to contact her for two days. 

She was airlifted to the hospital on Sunday afternoon after being found slumped unconscious on a bench in the Maltings, next to her father.

The pair remain in critical condition at Salisbury District Hospital.
