British Novichok survivor Charlie Rowley regains consciousness: Salisbury District Hospital

Novichok was invented by the Soviet Union and is one of the most toxic substances known to man, it blocks instructions from nerves to muscles and causes vast pain and death.

Mr Rowley was left in a critical condition and Dawn Sturgess was killed after they were poisoned by the substance.

NO traces of nerve agent have been found on a bus used by Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley. He is in a critical but stable condition, and is now conscious.

The couple had come across what police believe was a container likely to have been discarded when Sergei Skripal, a former Russian spy, was targeted with novichok in Salisbury. "Those involved have the training & expertise to safely remove the vehicle" and the risk to the public remains low".

Ms Sturgess died on Sunday evening at Salisbury District Hospital.

Lorna Wilkinson, the hospital's director of nursing, said "his condition is now serious, but stable". "Charlie is still very unwell".

Two people were exposed to the nerve agent Novichok at a house in in Amesbury, Wiltshire on 30 June. Britain has blamed Russian Federation for the poisoning of the Skripals, but Russian Federation has denied involvement.

In two and four years, we have a lot of players who will still be here with us. "I don't really see the point, whether it's for the French journalists, the foreign journalists, Belgian journalists, or others".

The wide investigation is now a homicide inquiry.

The death of Sturgess, a mother of three, was being treated as a murder, police said.

Describing the difficulties of the investigation, Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said: 'There are multiple scenes, there are only limited numbers of scientists and forensic medical officers - all of whom are volunteers by the way - to do what is a really, really unsafe piece of work for obvious reasons.

Police officers guard a cordon in Salisbury, one of five locations in the city and Amesbury under investigation.

Police are working on the theory that Mr Rowley and Ms Sturgess were poisoned when they handled the contaminated container after discovering it lying around in Salisbury. The search is focused on their homes and a park in Salisbury. Moscow strongly denies any involvement.

He warned the investigation into the latest poisonings would take months.

Asked whether the death could cloud the upcoming US-Russia summit in Helsinki next week, Peskov replied that the poisoning "has no relation" to the meeting.
