Police have spoken to Novichok poisoning victim Charlie Rowley

In response, the official Twitter account for Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs called Williamson's statements the latest attempt to unfairly blame Russian Federation for poisonings related to Novichok.

A statement from the Counter Terrorism Policing Network said: "The bus that Dawn and Charlie travelled on, on Friday night was identified and seized by Wiltshire Police on Wednesday 4 July - initially as a precautionary measure to check and ensure there was no risk to the public". "Could you perhaps come up with something new?"

Dawn Sturgess died after being exposed to the nerve agent Novichok.

"That is something that I think the world will unite with us in actually condemning".

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said it was implausible that the attack on the Skripals in Salisbury in March, and the poisonings nearby of Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley were not linked.

Lorna Wilkinson, director of nursing at the hospital, said: "While this is welcome news, we are not out of the woods yet". Then London pinned all the blame on Moscow, but Russian Federation repeatedly refuted all allegations about its involvement in the incident.

India thus clinched their sixth consecutive T20I series win, which is part of an unbeaten run stretching back to September 2017. Jason Roy hit the bulk of them - the opener scored 67 of 31 deliveries striking seven shots for sixes.

"It may be that it will never be possible to establish such a definitive link, but (the Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down) are already crystal clear that it is the same nerve agent type - a novichok - one that killed Dawn and poisoned Sergei and Yulia Skripal as well as Nick Bailey and Charlie Rowley".

Reuters contributed reporting to this article. "Charlie is still very unwell and will continue to require specialist, round-the-clock care here at Salisbury District Hospital", the report says.

Charlie Rowley, 45, woke up Tuesday at Salisbury Hospital in London. Public Health England have repeatedly said there is no wider threat to the public arising from the Skripal case.

Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies said people in the Amesbury and Salisbury area should not "pick up any foreign object which could contain liquid or gel, in the interests of their own safety". Britain has accused the Russian state of the attack on the Skripals, a charge denied by the Kremlin.

"Her death has only served to strengthen the resolve of the investigations team", he said, saying the immediate police priority is to find any container that may be the source of the Novichok.
