British man exposed to Novichok discharged

Meanwhile, an inquest begins Thursday into the death of 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess, who was also poisoned with Novichok last month, along with her partner Charlie Rowley, not far from where the Skripals were found. Sturgess died earlier this month and Rowley reportedly remains in critical condition.

Recall, Rowley along with his friend don Sturgess was in the hospital June 30 with symptoms of poisoning with nerve substance, which the authorities believe are a novice.

Ms Wilkinson said it was "also a day tinged with sadness for everyone" following the death of Ms Sturgess.

On Wednesday, worldwide chemical weapons experts completed their investigations in Amesbury, where they sought to identify whether the substance that poisoned the couple was from the same batch used against the Skripals. Sturgess died on July 8 from Novichok poisoning while Rowley is still being treated at a hospital.

But the 44-year-old British woman was actually applying a Soviet-era nerve agent that had previously sickened a former Russian spy and his daughter, three sources briefed on the United Kingdom poisoning investigation told CNN on Thursday. Subsequent investigation indicated they were poisoned by a nerve agent of the type Novichok, a group of deadly chemicals developed in the Soviet Union in the 1970s and 80s.

The attack on Skripal has made an already tense UK-Russia relationship even frostier.

She added that Mr Rowley had been decontaminated to ensure the nerve agent could no longer affect him or anyone who comes into contact with him.

Det Sgt Bailey is discharged from hospital, but says in a statement: "Normal life for me will probably never be the same".

The head of the Porton Down military research facility says his scientists have not verified that the nerve agent used in Salisbury came from Russian Federation.

On Wednesday, police started a search of the Queen Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury.

Ms Sturgess lived in Salisbury, and the couple had been in the city before going to Mr Rowley's flat in nearby Amesbury on Friday 29 June.

Sturgess's family paid tribute to the mother of three, calling her "a gentle soul who was generous to a fault".

"They (the investigators) are sure they (the suspects) are Russian", the report quoted the source as saying.

"For the avoidance of doubt, Mr Rowley's discharge creates no risk to anyone in the community".
