British Novichok survivor Charlie Rowley regains consciousness: Salisbury District Hospital”

In a statement released through the Met police, Sturgess's family said her death in hospital on Sunday, after falling ill along with her partner Charlie Rowley on June 30, "has been devastating for us".

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: "We have arranged the transportation of a auto from an address in Swindon this evening in relation to the on-going incident in Amesbury. Charlie is still very unwell and will continue to require specialist, round-the-clock care here at Salisbury District Hospital".

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 handled an item contaminated by Novichok, a few miles from where Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were attacked with the same poison in March.

Britain and its allies blamed Russia for the attack on the Skripals, prompting a major Western expulsion of Russian diplomats.

Neil Basu told a meeting in Amesbury that police were working on the theory that Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley had found a container housing Novichok.

"Dawn will always be remembered by us as a gentle soul who was generous to a fault", the family wrote.

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

Sally Davies, Britan's chief medical adviser, also said the threat to the public is low but reinforced warnings to residents of Salisbury and Amesbury against touching stray containers, syringes, needles, cosmetics or similar objects.

Ms Sturgess has since died in hospital.

A red Ford Transit van which Mr Rowley had been a passenger in and a bus taken by the pair the night before they became ill have also been taken away for testing. "Those involved have the training & expertise to safely remove the vehicle".

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the head of United Kingdom counter-terrorism policing, which is leading the investigation, said police are looking for a container contaminated with Novichok which the pair are believed to have handled.
