The English man who was exposed to the deadly nerve agent Novichok last week has regained consciousness, according to hospital officials.

"Dawn will always be remembered by us as a gentle soul who was generous to a fault", they said in a statement released by London's Metropolitan Police.

Lorna Wilkinson, Salisbury District Hospital's director of nursing, said Mr Rowley's condition was now serious, but stable.

Police have yet to establish how the couple, 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess and 45-year-old Charlie Rowley, came into contact with the nerve agent.

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, Britain's top anti-terrorism police officer, said the death "has only served to strengthen our resolve" to find those responsible.

"Our hypothesis is that they must have handled a container we are now seeking", he said.

Cheeky Princess Charlotte tells photographers 'You're not coming!'
A photo shared by People showed Charlotte poking out her tongue while George could be seen next to her with his mouth agape. According to the site, she also wore matching Manolo Blahnik suede pumps and a hat from Stephen Jones Millinery.

Residents of the homeless hostel in Salisbury where Sturgess lived, which was evacuated after the couple fell ill, expressed their devastation at the news of her death.

Defense Minister Gavin Williamson blamed Russian Federation for "committing an attack on British soil", speaking to MPs after an inter-ministerial meeting on the Cobra crisis.

On Sunday, police issued a statement saying there had been no evidence that either Rowley or Sturgess had been to any decontaminated sites from the nerve agent attack on Skripal and his daughter.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: "We have arranged the transportation of a vehicle from an address in Swindon this evening in relation to the on-going incident in Amesbury".

"However, if there is anyone who saw them or met with them who we haven't already spoken to, I would urge them to contact police on 0800 789 321".

Basu also said he did not believe there was much novichok in Salisbury - because the attackers would have been "foolish" to carry a large amount in.

Twitter CEO loses 200,000 followers in fake account purge
He lost just 326,118 followers on Thursday, the day before most accounts saw a drop, and on Friday he regained 5,339 followers. The social-media company warned on Wednesday that its crackdown on fake accounts means users will have fewer followers.

That incident left former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who was visiting from Russia, in a critical condition although they later recovered.

More than 100 police officers have been working to locate a small vial or other container thought to have held the nerve agent that sickened the two.

"This is a very rare substance banned by the global community and for there to be two separate, distinct incidents in one small English county is implausible to say the least", Basu added. Sturgess and Rowley were found at a house in Amesbury, 11 km (7 miles) away.

"The brutal reality, however, is that I can not offer you any such assurances or guarantees at this time". It is not known if he has been told that his girlfriend has died.

A member of the audience suggested that authorities had not been looking for the Novichok until the latest incident.
