Family pay tribute to British Novichok victim

Dawn Sturgess has died

The 45-year-old was exposed to Novichok along with partner Dawn Sturgess, who died on Sunday.

Most of the Cabinet seemed to have better things to do than attend a briefing on the circumstances surrounding the apparent poisoning of Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley, who were allegedly exposed to Novichok on July 1.

Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia fell ill after being targeted with the nerve agent in Salisbury on 4 March.

A bus that Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley used the night before they collapsed has also tested negative for the deadly agent.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson blamed Russian Federation for committing "an attack on British soil" over the latest poisonings, some four months after Sergei and Yulia Skripal were targeted.

I want to emphasise to everyone in the Salisbury and Amesbury area that nobody, adult or child, should pick up any foreign object which could contain liquid or gel, in the interests of their own safety.

The mother-of-three's family released a statement saying her death was "devastating" and that she was a "gentle soul who was generous to a fault".

Salisbury District Hospital said there has been a "small but significant" improvement in Charlie Rowley's condition.

'She had the biggest of hearts and she will be dreadfully missed by both her immediate and wider family'.

The auto is at least the third vehicle to be seized.

The investigation into the nerve agent poisoning that has left one woman dead and her partner critically ill has spread to another site, 40 miles from Salisbury.

His vehicle was sealed and taken away on the back of a truck.

Wiltshire Police said the public "should not be alarmed by this", adding: "Those involved have the training and expertise to safely remove the vehicle".

Police say it is their priority to find the container believed to have been handled by the pair.

The BBC understands Mr Rowley's flat is regarded as the key location in the search.

"The public health advice remains the same, with the current risk to the public remaining low, but anyone with concerns can call the dedicated helpline that has been set up in Wiltshire on 0800 092 0410".

A police cordon remains outside Charlie's house, while officers have also sealed off Rollestone Street in Salisbury, where Dawn had been living at John Baker House.
