British Police Find Bottle Containing Novichok In Amesbury Victim's Home

It's thought the novichok she was exposed to was from the batch used in a failed bid to kill ex-KGB spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in March.

The Metropolitan Police said on Friday that a small bottle discovered in Rowley's home has been identified as the source of the nerve agent.

Sturgess' partner, 45-year-old Charlie Rowley from Amesbury, a town a few miles from Salisbury, is still recovering in hospital after falling critically ill.

He and his partner, Dawn Sturgess, were found poisoned on June 30.
