COUNTER ter­ror­ism de­tec­tives in­ves­ti­gat­ing the con­tam­i­na­tion of two peo­ple by Novi­chok be­lieve they have found the source of the toxic sub­stance.

Dawn Sturgess, 44, died and her part­ner Char­lie Row­ley, 45, is se­ri­ously ill in hospi­tal af­ter they were ex­posed to the nerve agent last month.

New Scot­land Yard said that on Wed­nes­day a small bot­tle was re­cov­ered dur­ing searches of Mr Row­ley’s home in Ames­bury. Sci­en­tific tests con­firmed the sub­stance in the bot­tle is Novi­chok.
