Police issue stark Novichok warning as nerve agent source hunt continues

Ms Sturgess died on Sunday, while her partner Mr Rowley remains in hospital.

Police are working to establish whether the Britons were exposed to the same poison used in the attack on the Skripals.

The man who fell ill after he was exposed to the nerve agent novichok in Amesbury has made a "small but significant improvement".

Residents in Amesbury and Salisbury are being warned not to pick up "any foreign object which could contain liquid or gel" in a new advisory following the death of Novichok victim Dawn Sturgess.

It was unclear if Williamson was referring to the attack on the Skripals or a new attack.

Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the Skripal case and suggested the British security services carried out the attack to stoke anti-Moscow hysteria, an assertion London calls absurd.

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.

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

4 more boys brought out of flooded Thailand cave
On Sunday, officials waited until several hours after the rescued boys had been transported to hospitals to announce their rescue. Rescue mission chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said it had resumed, with divers re-entering the cave at 11am local time (4pm NZT).


"The brutal reality, however, is that I can not offer you any such assurances or guarantees at this time".

Police are continuing to hunt for a contaminated container which they believe was handled by the pair.

Police suspect the couple were exposed through a contaminated item left over from the first attack, which Britain blames on Russian Federation. "We will not be providing further commentary around our contact with Charlie".

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.

Ms Sturgess collapsed at about 10:15am and was taken to hospital in an ambulance and Mr Rowley was taken to hospital later that day.

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.

A tweet by police said, "the public should not be alarmed by this".

Anyone who was there between 22:00 BST on 29 June and 18:30 on 30 June should continue to follow advice, including washing their clothes in a washing machine.
