Her husband, Mr Rowley has since regained consciousness but remains in serious condition, as hospital staff continue to treat him.

This breaking news story is being updated and more details will be published shortly. Sturgess died in a hospital on Sunday. They were found to have been poisoned with Novichok, a lethal nerve agent produced in the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

"On Wednesday. a small bottle was recovered during searches of Charlie Rowley's house in Amesbury", police said in a statement. The container is believed to have poisoned the Wiltshire couple four months after a nerve agent attack against Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury.

Scientists at the Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory are still trying to establish whether the Novichok found at Mr Rowley's house came from the same batch of Novichok that contaminated Sergei and Yulia Skripal in March.

It was taken for tests where scientists confirmed the bottle contained Novichok.

'Inquiries are under way to establish where the bottle came from and how it came to be in Charlie's house'.

A vehicle has been seized by the military outside a police station in north Wiltshire.

Earlier today military workers seized two emergency vehicles as part of the investigation into the Novichok poisoning.

Police officers have cordoned off part of the auto park at Monkton Park in Chippenham as army personel worked to wrap and remove a vehicle as part of their nerve agent investigation.

A post-mortem examinaton will be conducted next Tuesday to investigate Ms Sturgess' death.
