Dawn Sturgess, a United Kingdom woman who was exposed to the Novichok nerve agent, has died.

Swindon is around 40 miles from Salisbury, where Yulia and Sergei Skripal became the first novichok victims, and 33 miles from Amesbury whereDawn Sturgess fell ill after receiving what police described as a "high dose" of the nerve agent.

They were believed to have become exposed to Novichok by handling a container, and a link to the Salisbury attack in March is a main line of investigation.

The Met said the murder inquiry is being led by the Counter Terrorism Policing Network and around 100 detectives are working "round the clock" alongside colleagues from Wiltshire police. "Dawn leaves behind her family, including three children, and our thoughts and prayers are with them at this extremely hard time".

Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the Skripal case and suggested the British security services carried out the attack to stoke anti-Moscow hysteria, an assertion London calls absurd.

Britain has blamed Moscow for the attack on the Skripals.

Double Russian agent Sergei Skripal has been found unconscious after being exposed to an unknown substance.

Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the Skripal incident.

Both Kavanaugh and Kethledge are former law clerks to retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy . Any of the candidates on Trump's short list would probably move the court to the right.

A auto has been seized by police in Swindon as the novichok poisoning investigation expands to a third area.

George Freeman, a Conservative lawmaker, tweeted that her death "raises quite serious questions" about the assurances from health officials that the risk to the wider public was low.

Britain "understands that direct dialogue between the two superpowers is capable of reducing the level of confrontation, gradually raising the level of trust between our countries, and destroying the lies fabricated against Russia", Zheleznyak said in July 9 comments released by his party.

Several sites have been cordoned off; the three of most interest are Queen Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury, where the British couple spent part of Friday; the Salisbury homeless hostel where Sturgess lived and both visited on Friday; and Rowley's Amesbury home, which they also visited on Friday.

But it advised against picking up "any odd items such as needles, syringes or unusual containers".

Officers are still trying to work out how Ms. Sturgess and Mr. Rowley were exposed to the nerve agent although tests have confirmed they touched a contaminated item with their hands.

Christine Blanshard, medical director at Salisbury District Hospital, where Sturgess and Rowley were being treated and where the Skripals were hospitalised, told The Daily Telegraph newspaper that staff had "worked tirelessly to save Dawn".

The Amesbury poisoning incident that killed a woman was an "anti-Russian provocation" likely conducted by British government officials, according to the Russian Embassy.
