Improvment in condition of Charlie Rowley, boyfriend of novichok victim Dawn Sturgess

Charlie's partner, 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess, died on Sunday evening after also being exposed to novichok.

Sturgess died Sunday, leaving behind her three children, police said.

"While this is welcome news, clearly we are not out of the woods yet", the statement said, according to the BBC.

British police said that novichok, the powerful nerve agent that killed one person and left another critically ill in southwestern England, could be active for up to 50 years if it remains in a container. Moscow has strongly denied any responsibility and hit back by expelling a spate of western diplomats.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she was appalled and shocked by Sturgess's death and the interior minister, Sajid Javid, said the "desperately sad news only strengthens our resolve to find out exactly what has happened".

On Sunday, officials decided they could no longer wait, saying conditions were "as flawless as they will be" for a rescue attempt. Thailand's navy SEALs say the four boys and coach rescued on Tuesday, after other rescues in the previous two days, are all safe.


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

'We sincerely apologise if any offence was caused, especially to the families of Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley, and understand the timing of the release of this product may have lacked sensitivity.

They also wished Charlie Rowley a "speedy recovery".

They joked about it on Instagram just hours before the death of Dawn Sturgess.

The poisoning of the Skripals was the first known offensive use of such a chemical weapon in Europe since World War Two.

The British government has accused Russian Federation of being behind the attack on Mr Skripal, who settled in the United Kingdom after a spy swap.

Officers have been piecing together movements of the pair in Salisbury and Amesbury before they were taken ill on Saturday 30 June.

Police initially thought they had consumed a contaminated batch of illegal drugs but their symptoms prompted further testing which confirmed their exposure to Novichok.

Britain has notified the global chemical weapons watchdog, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

Lorna Wilkinson, director of nursing at the hospital, said on Tuesday: "We have seen a small but significant improvement in the condition of Charlie Rowley".

In fact, Trump's pick was said to have the " inside track " from the get-go, thanks to his D.C. connections. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line.


Police are working to establish whether the Britons were exposed to the same poison used in the attack on the Skripals. Sergei and Yulia Skripal became seriously ill, but have both recovered.
