>> Yulia Skripal has been released from the hospital after recovering enough from the alleged nerve agent attack on her and her father, the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal. British media, citing anonymous sources, say that she is now in a secure location. She'd only woken up in the hospital two weeks ago.
Her father is still under care, although he's said to be recovering rapidly.>> Although he's recovering more slowly than Yulia, we hope that he too will be able to leave hospital in due course.>> What's next for the family is less clear.
