Russian 'Supergrass' Death: Toxicology Tests

Police are carrying out toxicology tests on the body of a Russian businessman who was providing evidence about alleged money laundering after he was found dead outside his home in Surrey.

Alexander Perepilichny, 44, was helping Swiss authorities investigate a $230m (£144m) money laundering scheme in Russia when he suddenly collapsed in Weybridge, on November 10.

More than two weeks later, the cause of his death has still not been established and it is still being treated as "unexplained".
