Police believe they have located the source of the Novichok nerve agent that poisoned two people in Salisbury last month, Scotland Yard has announced.
The Metropolitan Police said the small bottle was found during searches of Rowley's house Wednesday and scientists confirmed the substance in the bottle was Novichok.
The incident came months after the poisoning of former Russian agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, also with Novichok, prompting fears that Sturgess and Rowley had been exposed to some of the left-over poison.
Sturgess died on Sunday, while Rowley has regained consciousness and is no longer in a critical condition.
Scientists at the Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory are still trying to establish whether the Novichok found at Mr Rowley's house came from the same batch of Novichok that contaminated Sergei and Yulia Skripal in March.
Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, head of United Kingdom counter terrorism policing, said further traces of the substance could still remain in the area and urged people to continue to heed health warnings. "However, we can not guarantee that there isn't any more of the substance left", Basu said.
"This is to allow thorough searches to continue as a precautionary measure for public safety and to assist the investigation team".
Police said they had been able to speak to him "briefly".
Britain has invited independent technical experts from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog to travel to the United Kingdom early next week to independently confirm the identity of the nerve agent, the British Foreign Office said on Friday.
