I read it that he's talking about the physical possessions, which are at the very least inaccessible, and presumably will be destroyed, rather than his financial situation. I assume he's being paid, and either his insurers or the government will pay out for cars/possessions destroyed.

Read the article. 'Lose' as in, he contaminated the family home before they realised he'd been in contact with Novichok, so everything was destroyed.

No fking about with this stuff.
Thanks! It's in first bloody paragraph!

I was skim reading to find out how the hell he had been let down so badly and couldn't see how it had happened.

If contaminated it's a no brainer

But they can't go back to 'their' house and possessions - it's not just the financials!

yes It's not the same, and I'm sure many are aware of it, but check out the events of the Goiânia accident, where a scrap merchant bought a stolen medical scanner with a radioactive source:

Yes I jumped to the wrong conclusion as to why he lost his house possessions etc. While it's not great, it's not something to be messed with. Personally I'd hate to lose my possessions (especially photos etc) however my not one thing trump's the health of my family.

Very sad indeed. I sincerely hope he and his family get the support they deserve.

Whilst all innocently and adversely affected by this affair warrant every sympathy and support, I thought the Panorama programme was a pretty hopeless examination of what occurred; it added nothing new and was unnecessarily alarmist. And the Beeb's continuous coverage of it as 'news' is just naked hagiography.
Must do better (please).

It was pretty poor (like most Panoramas).

I thought it was pretty good and detailed what actually happened to the copper (what a poor , but decent bloke)

What would you want Panorama to say, it just recapped everything with some decent interviews

Im not normally a fan of Panorama either

One dead, three seriously ill in hospital, a city terrorised, and these bar stewards think it's a joke.

I would say you're right. The news that the GRU's cover story was completely blown apart by British Intelligence won't have been aired on Russian state TV so they can carry on mocking.
Anyone that 'had' seen Western news stories at the time and are stupid enough to speak out will be derided for falling for 'typical Western/British anti-Russian propaganda' etc etc.

It’s similar to what happened to a chap round here. 5 tonne of gravel delivered for a Tuesday morning only to arrive at 3pm and therefore there was not enough time to get all the stuff out in the drive and raked out.

Skripal's house to be demolished:

https://news.sky.com/story/sergei-skripal-poisoned...

It says a "replacement roof" will be installed, which seems odd given they will be creating a sealed scaffold cover over everything, unless the news articles have got it wrong and *only* the roof is being replaced? (which would be even more odd)

I think removing the roof is part of how they're going to clean it. Then it needs replacing.

Does sound odd though.

I'd have thought it would be cheaper, quicker and get a better result just demolishing it and rebuilding though - rebuild cost would be maybe £150k once the site is cleared/dug? I assume they have tested everything and perhaps the air currents took material from the door up the wall to the soffits, and perhaps it got drawn inside too, which would imply the brickwork is contaminated. It'd be interesting to know what happens to it if it's just cleaned up - I assume sold on the open market, I can't see the council or housing association putting people in it.

Yeah, I'd imagine a new build would be worth a few quid more on the open market too than something marketed as a house of deadly poison that's had a bit of a wipe down.

I'm sure the EA will spin it.

"Boasts an exotic history"
"Benefits from a recently replaced front door and roof"
"Much sought-after road"
"Lovely views of cathedral spire"
"Spacious driveway suitable for up to 4 police cars"

R4 bod this evening was saying they are doing this to prove it's a minor precaution with zero risk to the public / nothing to see here etc.

Then went on to detail the removal of the roof. Internal door frames, all interior woodwork and plaster!

Final option is council purchase it!

Perhaps they could put Anjem Choudary in there for further 'monitoring '!

It would annoy me living in a house, with so many tourists around, who were lost on their way to the Cathedral........
