"We have seen a small but significant improvement in the condition of Charlie Rowley", said Lorna Wilkinson, Director of Nursing at Salisbury District Hospital.

"We sincerely apologize if any offence was caused, especially to the families of Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley, and understand the timing of the release of this product may have lacked sensitivity", the company said in a statement, quoted by the Bristol Post. "Charlie is still very unwell and will continue to require specialist, round-the-clock care here at Salisbury District Hospital", the statement said.

Police have yet to establish how the couple, 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess and 45-year-old Charlie Rowley, came into contact with the nerve agent.

Police are now searching for a "contaminated item" that could have exposed the pair to the nerve agent, which is the same substance found in the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripel and his daughter Yulia in nearby Salisbury.

Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the Skripal case and suggested the British security services carried out the attack to stoke anti-Moscow hysteria, an assertion London calls absurd.

He said 100 detectives were working on the investigation, which was now focused on on Ms Sturgess's address within John Baker House in Salisbury, Mr Rowley's address in Muggleton Road, Amesbury. and an area in the Queen Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury.

He said no one else in the Amesbury and Salisbury region, where the couple lived in southwestern England, has shown any sign of Novichok poisoning.


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".

Ms Sturgess, who had a daughter aged 11 and two sons aged 19 and 23, had... On Monday, police said they had transported a van from Swindon, around 30 miles (48 km) from Amesbury, in connection with the investigation.

Local residents said the paramedic had told them he got bodily fluids on him, but he had been checked over by doctors and given the "all-clear".

A red Ford Transit van which Mr Rowley had been a passenger in and a bus taken by the pair the night before they became ill have also been taken away for testing.

It was feared it might have been contaminated and was taken to the Government laboratory at Porton Down, near Salisbury, to be destroyed. "Those involved have the training & expertise to safely remove the vehicle".

Police now believe the two handled a contaminated item with a high dose of Novichok, although they have not been able to confirm if it was from the same batch as the one used in the attempted murder of the Skripals.
