British woman dies after Novichok poisoning

Parts of Salisbury had only been reopened two months ago after the poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal

Authorities say Sturgess, along with her boyfriend, 45-year-old Charlie Rowley, became sick after they were exposed to Novichok on June 30.

Dawn Sturgess, 44, died in hospital Sunday evening, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

The man remains critically ill in hospital.

Tests have revealed that the Amesbury couple were exposed to the nerve agent after touching a contaminated item with their hands.

A woman has died in hospital more than a week after she was exposed to novichok in the first death from the nerve agent attack on Britain that the government has attributed to Russian Federation.

Police suspect Rowley and Sturgess handled a discarded item from the first attack, though they have not determined for certain that the two cases are linked.

Britain has openly accused Russian Federation of being responsible for poisoning the Skripals with Novichok, a family of advanced nerve agents developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970 and 1980s.

Russia, now hosting the soccer World Cup, has denied any involvement in the March incident and suggested the British security services carried out the attack to stoke anti-Moscow hysteria.

Theresa May said she was "appalled and shocked" by the death, which comes after the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury.

The Met said the murder inquiry is being led by the Counter Terrorism Policing Network and around 100 detectives are working "round the clock" alongside colleagues from Wiltshire police.

The Skripals were released from hospital but the investigation into the attack on them continues.

"Police and security officials are working urgently to establish the facts of this incident, which is now being investigated as a murder", she said.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned by a nerve agent in March.

Public Health England said the risk to the general public "remains low".

Police are still trying to piece together how Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley came into contact with Novichok. "The sentiment in the city is frustration, we want to get back to normal".
