Salisbury District Hospital have released an update on the condition of the Novichok victim.

Doctors at Salisbury District Hospital have provided an update on the treatment being given to Novichok victim Charlie Rowley. 

The 45 year old was admitted to hospital on Saturday June 30th, suffering from the effects of the nerve agent.

Lorna Wilkinson, Director of Nursing at Salisbury District Hospital, said this evening (Tuesday July 10th):

“We have seen a small but significant improvement in the condition of Charlie Rowley. He is in a critical but stable condition, and is now conscious.

“While this is welcome news, clearly we are not out of the woods yet. Charlie is still very unwell and will continue to require specialist, round-the-clock care here at Salisbury District Hospital.

“I would like to ask the media to refrain from some of the unhelpful and distressing speculation we’ve seen in recent days.”

Charlie Rowley Amesbury Incident

Charlie was admitted to hospital just a few hours after his partner, Dawn Sturgess, fell ill at his home on Muggleton Road in Amesbury.

Sadly, Dawn passed away on Sunday evening (July 8th).

A police cordon remains outside Charlie's house, while officers have also sealed off Rollestone Street in Salisbury, where Dawn had been living at John Baker House.

There are also cordons at Queen Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury, Amesbury Baptist Church and at the Boots store in The Centre in Amesbury, where the couple are known to have visited ahead of becoming unwell.
