Novichok nerve agent victim regains consciousness

Yulia Skripal was discharged from hospital in April and her father was discharged in May.

Dawn Sturgess, 44, died on Sunday evening after more than a week on life support.

Earlier on Monday, Britain's top counter-terrorism officer said detectives were unable to say if the Novichok that poisoned Sturgess and a man who is in critical condition in a hospital was from the same batch that struck down the Skripals. Sergei and Yulia Skripal became seriously ill, but have both recovered. "Charlie is still very unwell and will continue to require specialist, round-the-clock care here at Salisbury District Hospital", the report says.

The BBC understands Mr Rowley's flat is regarded as the key location in the search.

They have tested and ruled out a bus on which the pair travelled on Friday night but are still examining a red Transit van in which Mr Rowley travelled on Saturday.

The backdrop to this meeting was British but the issue was global as police issued a Novichok warning to the residents of Salisbury.

Police are working on the theory that Mr Rowley and Ms Sturgess were poisoned when they handled the contaminated container after discovering it lying around in Salisbury.

The high temperatures mean they then have to be out of them again soon after before they overheat. In May, the UK's national security adviser Sir Mark Sedwill said authorities did "not yet" know who was responsible for the Skripal death, and no updates have been offered since.
