A woman who was exposed to the nerve agent Novichok in Amesbury, in southwestern England, has died in hospital.

Dawn Sturgess, 44, was exposed to the same nerve agent that put a former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in hospital four months ago.

Ms Sturgess (above) and her partner Charlie Rowley, 45, were taken to hospital 10 days ago.

Police believed the pair had secondary exposure to the chemical weapon used in the attack on the Skripals.
