Novichok: police find more than 400 'potentially contaminated' items

Novichok

Rowley, 45, was the partner of Dawn Sturgess, 44, who died this month, just over a week after she was exposed to the Novichok in Amesbury, which is only a few kilometers from the Salisbury site where the Skripals were poisoned.

Experts are trying to determine whether the Novichok that poisoned them was from the same batch used in the attempted murder of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

About 400 items have been recovered by police investigating the Novichok poisoning of a couple in Wiltshire.

Mr Rowley remains critically ill in hospital.

Those behind nerve agent poisonings in England have not been identified and police can not guarantee there are no more traces of Novichok still in England, Britain's top counter-terrorism policeman said on Wednesday.

"A small bottle was recovered during searches of Charlie Rowley's house in Amesbury", counter-terrorism police said in a statement.

Instead, saying Moscow was "highly likely" to blame, the United Kingdom and its allies initiated a mass expulsion of Russian diplomats, resulting in more than 100 Russian embassy and consulate workers getting sent home from over a dozen countries.

British police said earlier they suspected the new victims had handled a container contaminated with Novichok and had no reason to think Rowley and Sturgess were targeted deliberately.

The nerve agent that has killed one person and left another seriously ill in hospital was in a perfume bottle, according to the brother of the man fighting for his life.

A post-mortem will take place on Tuesday before an inquest into her death opens on Thursday.

Britain's Foreign Office said Friday that the United Kingdom has asked the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to collect samples for analysis at its labs.

Mr Basu said: "It is not an exaggeration to say that the search process linked with both this and the Salisbury investigation has been one of the most complex and hard that United Kingdom policing has ever faced".

Police said that as a result only two deployments of search teams can typically be carried out at any particular scene per day.

On Friday, police reiterated advice from Public Health England for people in the area not to pick up unusual items - including cosmetics.

Mr Rowley, who regained consciousness this week, remains in a serious but stable condition in Salisbury District Hospital.
