Charlie Rowley discharged from hospital after Novichok poisoning

Charlie Rowley discharged from hospital after Novichok poisoning

Ms Wilkinson added that Mr Rowley had been decontaminated to ensure the nerve agent could no longer affect him or anyone who comes into contact with him. Rowley and the Skripals survived, but Sturgess died July 8.

"We have seen a small but significant improvement in the condition of Charlie Rowley". "Today is a very welcome milestone in his recovery".

The incident happened in the town of Amesbury close to Salisbury where Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were attacked with the same substance in March.

Reports last week suggested police have identified the suspected perpetrators of the Novichok attack on the Skripals.

Investigators are working on the theory that Sturgess sprayed Novichok straight onto her skin, the PA source said.

Security Minister Ben Wallace was dismissive, saying it belonged to the "ill informed and wild speculation folder".

The New York Times previously reported that British investigators believed the father and daughter were likely poisoned by current or former agents of Russia's military intelligence service, known as the GRU.

He left Russian Federation for Britain in a 2010 spy swap. "Police suspect they were exposed through a contaminated item left over from the first attack, which Britain blames on Russia", the British outlet wrote.

Ms Sturgess's death is being treated as murder and a coroner has released her body to allow her funeral to take place.

Working to ensure Russia does not meddle in US elections: White House
HORSLEY: It sounds like sort of typical Trumpian hyperbole, but some analysts I've talked with say it's not without foundation. Another Republican senator - John Thune of South Dakota - said having the translator give testimony was "highly unlikely".

They were both found collapsed at Charlie's home in Amesbury, around seven miles from where Sergei and Yulia fell unconscious on a park bench in Salisbury.

"We're pleased that Mr Rowley is well enough to leave hospital".

She said Public Health England has determined that Rowley "poses no risk to the public" now that he is out of the hospital.

Rowley and Sturgess collapsed at his house in Amesbury, north of Salisbury.

Rowley's brother Matthew told the BBC that the 45-year-old had told him the Novichok was contained in a perfume bottle.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will analyse the substance before reporting back its conclusions. He adjourned the proceedings until January.

Inquests are medical and legal hearings conducted in Britain in cases of unnatural, sudden or violent death.

Police officers search a river in Queen Elizabeth Gardens on Thursday.

Charlie was admitted to Salisbury District Hospital on Saturday June 30th, following exposure to the nerve agent, novichok.
