UK woman dies after being exposed to nerve agent novichok

Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley fell ill in nearby Amesbury, ten days ago and police have homed in on three sites at one of which they believe the couple may have first encountered the object containing the nerve agent.

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the head of Britain's counter-terror police, said Sturgess' death was "shocking and tragic news".

Dawn Sturgess, 44, died on Sunday after being exposed to Novichok.

Britain and its allies blamed Russia for the attack in March on the Skripals, prompting the biggest Western expulsion of Russian diplomats since the Cold War. It suspends high-level diplomatic contact with Moscow.

Sajid Javid said Sunday that both towns remain open for business and urged people to visit. "Dawn leaves behind her family, including three children, and our thoughts and prayers are with them at this extremely hard time", Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, head of UK Counter Terrorism policing, said Sunday.

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.

Police said the British couple were believed to have become exposed to Novichok by handling a "contaminated item", with speculation that it could have been the container used to administer the nerve agent to the Skripals.

The two Britons were initially thought to have taken an overdose of heroin or crack cocaine.

They are not showing any signs of having been exposed to the nerve agent, and are being screened as a precaution.

Renard Matthews Remembered by Family in Unique Way at Wake
New Orleans' WDSU-TV identified the man as Renard Matthews , saying he died June 25 after being shot in the head. Not only was he representing his favorite team, but he was also "playing" NBA2K on his Xbox One.


It remains unclear exactly how the pair came into contact with the nerve agent, though tests have confirmed they touched a contaminated item with their hands.

"After the hell visited upon Russian Federation by official London after the worldwide hate campaign launched by the UK Government against our country and our people in the past months, there is much which could be said today", the Foreign Affairs Ministry statement read.

Both were taken to Salisbury District Hospital, where they were treated for exposure to a nerve agent of the type known as Novichok.

John Glen, the Conservative Party legislator for the region, said the new poisoning has threatened an economic rebound from the slowdown caused by the attack on the Skripals. Her father was discharged on May 18. The hospital's medical director, Dr. Christine Blanshard, said the staff "worked tirelessly to save Dawn".

"We don't actually know which one it is and we know very little about them", says Andrea Sella, a synthetic inorganic chemist at University College London.

The producer said the range was developed following the Skripals' recovery.

"Police and security officials are working urgently to establish the facts of this incident, which is now being investigated as a murder", the statement read.

Russian state television reports on July 9 nonetheless continued to cast doubt on the British investigations into the poisonings.
