Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has praised the robust response of the UK’s Nato allies to the Salisbury Novichok attack, suggesting it would make Russia think twice in future.
Novichok victim Charlie Rowley has said he “didn’t really get any answers” after meeting with Russia’s ambassador in London to question him about the death of his partner Dawn Sturgess.
The Novichok poisoning has tested officers to their limits and is the most complex and demanding case in the history of Wiltshire Police, the force’s chief constable has said.
Former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a nerve agent in Salisbury in March last year.
Intelligence services investigated “increased” and “unusual” activity at the Russian embassy in London in the days before and after the Novichok poisoning, the Press Association understands.
Visitors to Salisbury halved in the wake of the Novichok attack but the city’s economy is gradually beginning to recover.
Salisbury is ready to move on from the Novichok poisoning but residents are frustrated the perpetrators have not yet been brought to justice, it is claimed.
Novichok victim Charlie Rowley has appealed for justice to be served almost a year after he and his partner were caught up in the Salisbury nerve agent attacks.
Police have repeated pleas for information over the Novichok poisoning as Salisbury was declared decontaminated of the nerve agent.
The parents of the woman who died in the Novichok poisonings have said they blame the UK Government for putting the public at risk.
