The UK is to build a new chemical weapons "defence centre" to protect itself from what it says is the growing threat from Russia and North Korea.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson will announce the £48m facility will be located at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory in Porton Down.

Scientists at the Wiltshire lab helped identify the nerve agent used to attack ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal.

Thousands of British troops are also to be vaccinated against anthrax.
