All 28 European Union nations have agreed with Britain it was ‘highly likely’ Russia was behind the poisoning of a former double agent.

EU chief Donald Tusk revealed on Twitter the bloc agreed ‘there is no other plausible explanation’for the nerve-agent poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia.

The statement will be seen as a victory for British Prime Minister Theresa May, who has been urging fellow EU leaders to back Britain in blaming Russia.

Russia denies responsibility for the attack on March 4.

The Skripals are still in a critical condition in hospital.
