Inquiry hears Litvinenko statement denouncing Putin

Ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko may have been poisoned with polonium "not once but twice", the public inquiry into his death has heard.

Mr Litvinenko died from radiation poisoning in a London hospital in November 2006, nearly three weeks after drinking tea laced with the substance.

Two Russians, Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitry Kovtun, have denied any involvement.

Counsel to the Inquiry lawyer Robin Tam QC read out a statement made by Mr Litvinenko shortly before his death.
