Police search intensifies after couple poisoned with Novichok

Another suspected poisoning puts Britain on edge

That's about 10 miles from where Sergei Skripal, a former Russian spy who later went to work for the British government, and daughter Yulia were poisoned.

The episode in Salisbury - the first use of a nerve agent in Europe since the Second World War - sparked worldwide outrage. British ministers and members of the royal family have also boycotted the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The UK's top counter-terrorism officer confirmed the couple's condition today, four days after they were rushed to hospital.

"They can come and tell us what happened".

Authorities are working on the strong assumption that they came into contact with the nerve agent in a different location from the sites which were part of the clean-up after the Skripal incident in Salisbury.

When Hobson turned up there on Saturday morning, he was met by "loads of ambulances", firemen and emergency service crews in protective clothing.

The pair, who are being treated at Salisbury District Hospital, were initially believed to have taken heroin or crack cocaine from a contaminated batch but tests are ongoing to identify the substance involved.

Police did not point to any individuals or nations in the more recent case, with Basu saying "we are not in a position to say whether the nerve agent was from the same batch that the Skripals were exposed to". "This government and its representatives will have to apologise to Russian Federation and the worldwide community". British Prime Minister Theresa May has blamed Russian Federation for the first poisoning attack - an assertion the Kremlin denies. British Home Secretary Sajid Javid told Parliament on Thursday that it is now time for Russian Federation to explain "exactly what has gone on".

Wiltshire residents have been told to expect investigators in hazardous material suits to descend on the scenes, while other sites the couple were known to have visited before being taken ill are behind cordons.


"I'm not so easily scared, but there has to be more to it", said Justin Pritchard, enjoying a beer with a friend. "We simply don't know". Spire FM says the incident is "thought to have been a drug-related medical episode". Now this is completely separate.

According to reports, investigators are concentrating their search on the homes of Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley amid fears they picked the item up and took it back to either one of the properties.

Basu said there was nothing in the backgrounds of Sturgess or Rowley that would suggest they would be a target for a deliberate attack - they have no connections to the intelligence or security communities.

The officer, who is thought to be with Wiltshire Police, is now receiving treatment at Salisbury District Hospital. But they have not explained how they can, or cannot, track the nerve agent through an area.

Britain is foolish if it believes Russia staged a new nerve agent attack in England in the middle of the soccer World Cup, Russia's embassy to the Netherlands wrote on social media on Thursday.

"The latest case seems to be an odd one", Bird said.

Alex Brittany, 29, said he woke up to find the Baptist Church near his home being cordoned off.

Experts say just a few milligrams of the odorless Novichok liquid - the weight of a snowflake - is enough to kill a person within minutes. But finding residue before it poisons unwitting victims is the problem.
