Police cordon off play area near former Russian spy's home

LONDON (Reuters) - British police placed a cordon around a children’s play area near the home of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal who was poisoned with a nerve agent earlier this month in southern England.

“As a precautionary measure, they have this afternoon placed a cordon around a children’s play area at Montgomery Gardens, near the Skripals’ home,” London’s Metropolitan police said in a statement on Thursday.
