Tragic mum exposed to a high dose of novichok

Amesbury incident

Police in the United Kingdom have warned they can not guarantee the safety of the public after the death of a woman who came into contact with the Novichok nerve agent near Salisbury in southern England.

"This latest horrendous turn of events has only served to strengthen the resolve of our investigation team as we work to identify those responsible for this outrageous, reckless and barbaric act", Mr Basu said. Both she and Rowley were admitted to Salisbury District Hospital, the same hospital where the Skripals were treated.

British police say a woman in England has died after being exposed to Novichok, the nerve agent that also poisoned a former Russian spy and his daughter there in March.

Britain has openly accused Russian Federation of being responsible for poisoning the Skripals with Novichok, a family of advanced nerve agents developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970 and 1980s.

A Kremlin spokesman said linking Russian Federation to the poisonings would be "absurd".

However, several sites remain closed off as police continue to investigate.

A post-mortem examination of Ms Sturgess, from Durrington, is due to take place and her family has been informed, police said. Sturgess was taken to hospital around 10.15am and Rowley several hours later, around 3.30pm.

Peskov said that linking Russian Federation to the poisoning would be "absurd".

He said the "main line of inquiry" was a connection between the Skripal poisoning and this case but said scientists had not been able to determine whether the nerve agent came from the same batch.

Yulia Skripal, Sergei's daughter, was in a coma for 20 days after she was attacked and was eventually discharged about five weeks after the poisoning.

Last month The Times reported Sergei Skripal's home and a house belonging to the police officer Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury was to be bought by the British government in a £1m deal that also includes cars and other family possessions.

"We have told our British colleagues that they are playing with fire and they will be sorry", he said.

"After new tests carried out with patient samples, we now know that y were exposed to nerve agent after handling a contaminated object", London police said in a statement.

Specialists at the nearby military research laboratory at Porton Down, which specializes in the study of chemical weapons, identified the nerve agent used against the Skripals and Sturgess and Rowley as Novichok.

The Guardian wrote that while British health officials still say there is no broader threat to the public, they are still advising locals to avoid picking up objects such as "needles, syringes and unusual containers". "However, it is important that the investigation is led by the evidence available and the facts alone", the Met said.
