For anyone wishing to harm Sergei Skripal, the former Russian double agent, he was simple enough to find.

Pictures obtained by The Times show him and his daughter, Yulia, smiling and drinking at The Mill, a 16th-century pub in Salisbury now at the centre of a massive police investigation, and at other venues in the town.

Hours after visiting the same pub on Sunday the pair were fighting for their lives, having been attacked by a nerve agent.

Before that point Mr Skripal, 66, enjoyed a quiet and predictable life in the cathedral city.
