A Russian woman who was poisoned last month has been discharged from hospital.

Yulia Skripal, who is 33-years-old, was found slumped on a bench in the city of Salisbury alongside her Dad, Sergei Skripal, who had also been poisoned.

She had been in hospital for more than a month.

The hospital says that although she has now been discharged, she will continue to receive treatment.
