Bristol distillery apologises for Novichok vodka sold as victim died

"It may be that it will never be possible to establish such a definitive link, but (the Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down) are already crystal clear that it is the same nerve agent type - a novichok - one that killed Dawn and poisoned Sergei and Yulia Skripal as well as Nick Bailey and Charlie Rowley".

Ms Sturgess died on Sunday evening at Salisbury District Hospital.

It was unclear if Williamson was referring to the attack on the Skripals or a new attack. "Charlie [Rowley] is still very unwell and will continue to require specialist, round-the-clock care".

Police seized a vehicle in the large town of Swindon as part of their probe into the death of 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess, who was exposed to Novichok, a military-grade nerve agent produced in the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

Police have said Sturgess, who was Rowley's partner, handled an item contaminated by Novichok in southwest England, a few miles from Salisbury where Skripal and his daughter Yulia were struck down.

They both then fell ill on Saturday 30 June, and Ms Sturgess died eight days later.

He confirmed that investigators had seized a bus which the couple travelled on, as well as a red Transit van which Mr Rowley used, and had tested them for contamination.

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".

The two spent weeks in critical condition but have since been discharged from the hospital.

Detectives are still investigating the attempted murders of the Skripals and are considering whether the separate incidents may be linked. Skripal, 67, and his 33-year-old daughter survived the attack in the English town of Salisbury, which the British government blames on Russian Federation. They have not found any evidence that they visited any of the sites which were decontaminated following the Skripal poisoning.

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.

Police seized a auto in Swindon on Monday as part of their ongoing investigation into the poisoning.

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