Counter-terrorism police are investigating the death of Mr Glushkov, who was found at his home in south-west London on Monday. The Russian national previously worked at Berezovsky's vehicle company LogoVAZ and Russian state airline Aeroflot, from which he was convicted of stealing $100 million previous year.

His death came after Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were rushed to hospital in a critical condition after being exposed to the nerve agent in Salisbury on March 4.
