Novichok in a bottle
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.
