Salisbury District Hospital said yesterday that Charlie was now conscious but 'not out of the woods yet'.

Officers have been piecing together movements of the pair in Salisbury and Amesbury before they were taken ill on Saturday 30 June.

In a statement, Scotland Yard said:

"Officers from the investigation team have spoken briefly to Charlie and will be looking to further speak with him in the coming days as they continue to try and establish how he and Dawn came to be contaminated with the nerve agent.

"Any contact officers have with Charlie will be done in close consultation with the hospital and his doctors. We will not be providing further commentary around our contact with Charlie."
