Military personnel remove van connected with Amesbury couple poisoning

A 45-year-old man, Charlie Rowley, who also fell ill remains in a critical condition.

A British woman died on Sunday after she was poisoned by the same nerve agent that struck a former Russian spy in March and triggered a crisis in relations between Western capitals and Moscow.

Dawn Sturgess, a 44-year-old mother of three, died on Sunday from contact with the same military-grade toxin that almost killed a former Russian spy and his daughter in an attack that Britain blamed on Moscow.

Sturgess initially collapsed at an address in Amesbury on June 30 and was taken to the hospital, police said.

Prime Minister Theresa May said she was appalled and shocked by the death.

Britain and its allies blamed Moscow for trying to kill the pair, prompting angry denials that led to an global diplomatic crisis.

March 26: European Union countries and others including Canada show solidarity with the U.K.by expelling Russian diplomats. "Dawn leaves behind her family, including three children, and our thoughts and prayers are with them at this extremely hard time", Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, head of UK Counter Terrorism policing, said Sunday. Her partner Charlie Rowley, 45, is critically ill.

The British government blamed Russia for the attack against the Skripals, and senior British officials said such an assault would not have been carried out without Russian President Vladimir Putin's knowledge.

A woman who was poisoned by a military-grade nerve agent in southwest England died Sunday, eight days after police believe she touched a contaminated item that has not been found.

Samples from the two showed they had been exposed to a nerve agent after touching a contaminated item, police said.

Yulia Skripal is released from hospital on April 10.

John Glen, the Conservative Party legislator for the region, said the new poisoning has threatened an economic rebound from the slowdown caused by the attack on the Skripals.

Sergei Skripal is discharged from hospital on May 18.

Dr Christine Blanshard, medical director at Salisbury District Hospital, said: "The staff here worked tirelessly to save Dawn". All three survived; officials have not said publicly whether they have any lasting impairments.

March 28: British police say they suspect the primary location of exposure was Sergei Skripal's residence.

"Because the nerve agents compromise nerve and muscle function, their effects are widespread and where deaths occur these are usually due to either respiratory or circulatory failure, or both", he said.

Public Health England insists the overall risk to the public of being poisoned by the nerve agent is low.

"Police and security officials are working urgently to establish the facts of this incident, which is now being investigated as a murder", she added.

"We regret the death of a British citizen [Dawn Sturgess died after being exposed to a nerve agent in the town of Amesbury on July 8 - TASS], we are still deeply concerned about the recurring poisonings on British soil".
