Russian poison victim no longer critical, speaking with police

Car seized in Swindon in Novichok poisoning investigation

The hospital on Tuesday said Rowley, who fell ill on June 30 at his home in Amesbury near Salisbury, had regained consciousness but was "not out of the woods yet".

Charlie Rowley, 45, began answering questions after days in a coma after being taken seriously ill, following exposure to the nerve agent.

"Director of nursing Lorna Wilkinson said: "[Charlie Rowley] is in a critical but stable condition, and is now conscious. 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.

The London police anti-terrorism department earlier stated that Sturgess and Rowley came into contact with Novichok - the same nerve agent that poisoned former Colonel of the Main Intelligence Directorate Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia this past March.

The report notes that the conversation was short, and later, investigators hope to talk again with Charles that to install the circumstances under which he was poisoned and 44-year-old don Sturgess from the village of Durrington, who died on 8 July.

It was unclear if Williamson was referring to the attack on the Skripals or a new attack.

Defense Minister Gavin Williamson blamed Russian Federation for "committing an attack on British soil", speaking to MPs after an inter-ministerial meeting on the Cobra crisis. "We will not be providing further commentary around our contact with Charlie".

He also said he told May "how to do it", but that she "didn't listen" and "wanted to go a different route". He said: "I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad".

NO traces of nerve agent have been found on a bus used by Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley.

Basu replied: "I take your point and I know you are really concerned about it".

Despite the admission, and acknowledging that the investigation "must be led" by evidence and "facts alone", the Scotland Yard officer added that he believed it to be "implausible" that there would be two separate incidents in one small English county.

Baroness Jane Scott, the leader of Wiltshire Council, said: "I welcome the announcement of this support package from government, and look forward to working with them to provide the essential support the communities and businesses affected by this incident need".

Novichok was developed by the Soviet military during the Cold War.

"If it was sealed in a container and it was in a landfill site it would effectively be safe because it would not be touched by anyone and it would last for probably - I've been told by scientists - 50 years", he said.
