The United States and its European allies are expelling dozens of Russian diplomats in a co-ordinated response to the poisoning of a former Russian spy in the UK.

The US has ordered 60 Russian diplomats to leave the country.

The UK announced it was expelling 23 Russian diplomats earlier this month.

More than 20 countries have aligned with the UK, expelling more than 100 diplomats.

This is said to be the largest collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers in history.

Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were poisoned in Salisbury earlier this month, sparking a huge international fallout.
