UK police and counter-terrorism officers race to find source of new nerve agent poisoning.

More than 100 officers were looking for clues in a race to understand how two local people were exposed to a nerve agent that was produced in the Soviet Union during the Cold War.


. British Home Secretary has called on Russia to explain "exactly what has gone on". The Kremlin surprisingly, has said it's absurd to suggest Russia was involved.


We thought it was women most likely to dispatch the enemy by poison

I do like how they've said it was surprising the Kremlin denied it hah, what else are they going to say!

Wonder what's going on behind the scenes for this and the previous deaths' - why now?
Sorry Owen, that was me who threw the 'surprisingly' bit in. :D

Investigators think this might be accidental contamination that may have come from a carelessly disposed of vial (from the March poisonings) the two casualties might have touched. How deadly is this stuff?

It's awful people can die like this. Remember when that thunderstorm came over Melbourne and there were asthma casualties? I understand the explanation but I saw my friends face afterwards and it didn't look like asthma to me, it looked like chemical burn. Not a conspiracy, just an observation.

Well that's disappointing, I would have appreciated good tongue in cheek journalism!

Jeez you'd have to be bloody unlucky to come across it wouldn't you.

Reading further into this, it turns out that the batch of Novichok was in a perfume bottle that old mate "found" and gave to his partner. He thought it was worth it because it was in a "fancy looking box" . This poisoning also occurred in the same area as Skripel and his daughter.

Perhaps it was the same batch that poisoned the Skripels and discarded, which has then been found by this guy dumpster diving.
