Charlie's Rowley's brother says he's visited him at Salisbury District Hospital once again.

Matthew Rowley said Charlie, who remains in a serious but stable condition after he was exposed to the poison, told him he picked up the container.

Police have not confirmed the claim.

45 year old Charlie Rowley, from Muggleton Road in Amesbury, fell ill on 30th June hours after his partner Dawn Sturgess, 44, collapsed after being exposed to novichok.

Dawn passed away on 8th July and books of condolence have now been set up at Salisbury and Amesbury Libraries.
