>> A man and a woman are in critical condition and are being tested for exposure to an unknown substance, just miles from the British town where former Russian spy Sergei Skripal was poisoned in March. That's according to local police who say they haven't found a connection to the Skripal case at the moment, but they've declared a major incident in the area anyway out of precaution.

National counter terrorism police are also investigating. The man and woman who have not been identified were found unconscious on Saturday in Amesbury, seven miles from Salisbury where Skripal was exposed to a nerve agent. And initially, it was believed they'd suffered from a reaction to heroin or cocaine. Police didn't raise the emergency level until late Tuesday night.
