CCTV footage has been published apparently showing former Russian spy Sergei Skripal on the night he was left critically ill after being exposed to a mystery substance in Britain.

Press Association secured the footage, which it says shows Skripal walking with an unidentified woman in her 30s, who was also left fighting for her life after the incident on Sunday.

PA said the pair were strolling through an alley between where Skripal had dinner and the bench where he was later found unconscious.

The 66-year-old former Russian intelligence official was taken ill at a shopping centre in Salisbury, south England. He and the woman are both in intensive care at Salisbury District Hospital.

"They are currently being treated for suspected exposure to an unknown substance. Both are currently in a critical condition in intensive care," police said on Monday.

Skripal was granted asylum in Britain after being pardoned by Russia in a 2010 "spy swap" deal with the US, under which 10 Russian spies arrested by the FBI were released.

The ex-Russian military intelligence colonel was jailed by Moscow for 13 years after passing the identities of Russian intelligence agents working in Europe to the UK's Secret Intelligence Service, MI6, the BBC said.
