A Russian Embassy spokesman said: "All allegations of Russia's involvement in the incidents in Salisbury and Amesbury are merely speculative and are not based on objective data of the investigation".

It is completely unacceptable for our people to be either deliberate or accidental targets, or for our streets, our parks, our towns to be dumping grounds for poison.

Police say the pair were exposed to the potentially deadly nerve agent Novichok after "handling a contaminated item".

Police and emergency services initially believed the pair may have taken heroin or crack cocaine "from a contaminated batch of drugs", however further tests are now being carried out. They did not elaborate.

"It's not just Amesbury, but also the nearby city of Salisbury, which has had areas shut off, like this park near where Sergei and Yulia Skripal were found unconscious earlier this year", said Al Jazeera's Sonia Gallego, reporting from Amesbury.

Developed in the then-Soviet Union in the 1970s, the paralyzing compound - which can be absorbed through the skin - had been placed on the Skripals' front door in what is widely considered to have been an assassination attempt by the current Russian state security agency.

CCTV footage has emerged of Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley buying alcohol more than 24 hours before they became seriously unwell. "We're working extremely hard to try to understand the circumstances, the chronology".

"I hope we are not back in this position in four months' time", Mr Pritchard said. Officials are also working to decontaminate the area in hopes of avoiding any additional exposures.

PA Wire/PA Images The UK's head of counter-terrorism policing Neil Basu and chief medical officer for England Dame Sally Davies speaking at a news conference.

Officers were called to a home in Muggleton Road, Amesbury, on Saturday morning when 44-year-old woman Ms Sturgess collapsed. He said that Sturgess fell ill first then Rowley later on.

The episode in Salisbury - the first use of a nerve agent in Europe since WWII - sparked worldwide outrage.

Andrea Sella, professor of inorganic chemistry at University College London, said Novichok nerve agents were created to be quite persistent and did not decompose quickly.

After the Skripal poisoning, police investigators in protective suits scoured Salisbury.

Russian Federation said Thursday it had offered assistance to Britain with the Skripal investigation, but that Britain refused the offer.

Moscow hit back by expelling Western diplomats, questioning how Britain could know that Russian Federation was responsible and offering rival interpretations, including that it amounted to a plot by British secret services.
