Novichok nerve agent victim regains consciousness

Howard TerryJul 12, 2018

Salisbury District Hospital, where Rowley is being treated, said his condition has improved and he is no longer critical.

The hospital said in a statement that "while this is welcome news, clearly we are not out of the woods yet".

In a statement today, Scotland Yard said: 'Officers from the investigation team have spoken briefly to Charlie and will be looking to further speak with him in the coming days as they continue to try and establish how he and Dawn came to be contaminated with the nerve agent'.

Russian Federation has committed an attack that resulted in the death of a Briton, defense minister Gavin Williamson said on Monday, linking Russian Federation to the incident after a 44-year-old woman who was poisoned by nerve agent Novichok died.

Police have said Sturgess, who was Rowley's partner, handled an item contaminated by Novichok in southwest England, a few miles from Salisbury where Skripal and his daughter Yulia were struck down.

Basu said Tuesday police have found no forensic link between the two cases, and it was possible that a link would never be established, the Guardian reports.

Baroness Jane Scott, the leader of Wiltshire Council, said: "I welcome the announcement of this support package from government, and look forward to working with them to provide the essential support the communities and businesses affected by this incident need".

"This is a very rare substance banned by the worldwide community and for there to be two separate, distinct incidents in one small English county is implausible to say the least", he said.

Britain's public health authority acknowledged on Friday the concerns of people living in the area after the two incidents involving Novichok, but said it was confident that the risk to the public remained low.

Basu replied: "I take your point and I know you are really concerned about it".

They had both been taken to hospital in the city of Amesbury on June 30.

"There is a possibility they found it on March 5 and only opened it in the past 10 days".

Williamson was asked in parliament about the threat facing people in Britain after the death of Dawn Sturgess on Sunday.

The investigation became a murder hunt after the death of Sturgess, a 44-year-old mother of three, who lived in Amesbury, a town near Salisbury.

Six locations visited by the couple have been cordoned off, including Mr Rowley's home on Muggleton Road in Amesbury, a Boots shop and a baptist church.

The effect is devastating, with muscles compromised and nerves linked to other organs rendered ineffective.
