Novichok victim Charlie Rowley leaves hospital

Novichok victim Charlie Rowley leaves hospital

Admitted to hospital on 30 June, Ms Sturgess, 44, later died, while Mr Rowley, 45, was discharged on Friday, three weeks after falling ill.

Charlie Rowley, 45, was discharged from Salisbury district hospital nearly three weeks after he and his partner, Dawn Sturgess, collapsed at his flat in Amesbury after coming into contact with novichok.

He reiterated that the public should not pick up items such as syringes, needles, cosmetics or objects made of plastic, metal, or glass.

Rowley and Sturgess were poisoned by the nerve agent just months after the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, were exposed to Novichok.

The UK government has blamed Russian Federation for the incident, but the country's authorities deny any involvement.

Salisbury District Hospital say their thoughts are with the family and friends of Charlie's partner, Dawn Sturgess at this time 'as they go through the hard process of coming to terms with her death'.

Police say the source of the Novichok which killed Sturgess was a small bottle they found in Rowley's house.

Paul Cosford of Public Health England said it was safe for Rowley to leave hospital.

'Wiltshire Police will continue to co-ordinate activity with partner agencies at a local level to ensure that Mr Rowley continues to receive the support he needs in his ongoing recovery'.

Tour director calls for calm after Alpe d'Huez incidents
Lance Armstrong won an individual time trial up Huez in 2004 while wearing yellow but that victory was later stripped for doping. Thomas, a former track rider, is a proven stage race victor who has never earned a podium place on a three-week Grand Tour.

An inquest into the death of Sturgess opened on Thursday in Salisbury and was adjourned until a pre-inquest review on January 16, pending further investigation.

Ms Wilkinson said the treatment involved decontaminating Mr Rowley.

Sky News' Lisa Dowd, who is at the scene, said: "This is believed to be one of the areas where Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess visited before they fell ill".

Police warned they could not be certain there were no more contaminated sites.

They are believed to have been identified through CCTV, cross-checked with border entry data.

Britain blamed Russian Federation for the poisoning of the Skripals.

The Met Police, which is leading the investigation, and the Home Office have both declined to comment.

The second round of nerve agent poisonings put the towns of Amesbury and Salisbury, where Sturgess lived, on edge as more than 100 counterterrorism officers searched for the source of the Novichok.

The BBC has not been able to independently confirm the story.
