This time another woman and man were in direct contact with something linked to nerve agent. Dawn Sturgess, 44, falled ill on 30 June and died in hospital on Sunday. Charlie Rowley, 45, who was also exposed to the nerve agent in Amesbury, remains critically ill in hospital. The investigation is being led by detectives from the Counter-Terrorism Policing Network and about 100 detectives are working on the case alongside Wiltshire Police. “Detectives will continue with their painstaking and meticulous work to gather all the available evidence so that we can understand how two citizens came to be exposed with such a deadly substance that tragically cost Dawn her life.”

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the head of UK Counter-Terrorism policing, said. He added: “Detectives will continue with their painstaking and meticulous work to gather all the available evidence so that we can understand how two citizens came to be exposed with such a deadly substance that tragically cost Dawn her life.” British diplomat Julian King, the European Commissioner responsible for the EU’s security union, said: “Those behind this are murderers.” Public Health England said the risk to the general public “remains low”. The working hypothesis is that the pair became contaminated after touching a poison container left over from the March attack on Sergei and Yulia Skripal.
