Half of Britons want the government to impose further sanctions on Russia to combat the threat from Moscow, a poll has revealed, The Independent reports.

49 per cent of the British public support the introduction of new diplomatic or financial measures against the Kremlin.

Nine months after the attempted assassination of Sergei Skripal in Salisbury – and amid growing fears of cyberwarfare – exclusive polling by BMG shows that 60 per cent of adults believe Russia poses a considerable or moderate threat to the UK.
