Another suspected Novichok incident in Salisbury UK


Senior Member.
Charlie Rowley, 45, and Dawn Sturgess, 44, collapsed at a house in Amesbury, Wiltshire, on Saturday and remain critically ill.

Home secretary Sajid Javid said the nerve agent was the same as that used on ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in March.

Russia said Theresa May's government was subjecting them "to hell".

Police have not identified the item handled by the couple.

Mr Javid accused Russia of using Britain as a "dumping ground for poison" after the second incident involving the nerve agent.

Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova urged police not to be led by the "dirty political game" and said she was confident London would have to apologise to Russia.

Debbie Stark, south west deputy director from Public Health England said the risk to the public of further poisoning incidents "remains low".

Police have set up a helpline for anyone who needs further advice: 0800 092 0410 or 0207 158 0124.

In a statement to MPs, Mr Javid said: "It is now time that the Russian state comes forward and explains exactly what has gone on."

He said the "strong working assumption" was that the couple came into contact with Novichok in a different location to the sites which had been part of the clean-up operation in near-by Salisbury after the Skripal poisoning.

Authorities believe this incident is related to the Skripal incident in March, maybe from a discarded container used in the previous attack, and as I type the deputy chief constable of Wiltshire police is on the local regional news saying the contact with the agent was 'accidental' and not a deliberate attack.

The conspirasphere is already awash with claims of false flags and pointing out that the UK bio-chemical research unit at Portland Down is just a mile or so away.

Russia's initial response is to accuse the UK of trying to sabotarge the world cup...
And we would do this while England potentially has the best chance to win it in over 50 years because...?

Because it is the standard russian tactic to punt up a raft of "possible alternatives" to their involvement to dissipate the attention on them.

I think I know this one. Because the government gave up on England long before the Word Cup kicked off and declared that no minister or royal would attend it. And now, if England reaches the final, they will look bad whatever they reverse the decision or stick to it :cool:
