British police say a woman who was exposed to a nerve agent in southern England has died.

A Salisbury District Hospital spokesperson said that many members of the public had sought medial advice after the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March.

London blames Russian Federation for the Skripal attack, with interior minister Sajid Javid yesterday accusing Moscow of using Britain as a "dumping ground for poison". And Sergei Zheleznyak, deputy speaker of the State Duma, offered a novel theory for the new poisoning claims: British people who traveled to Russian Federation for the World Cup are developing "really positive emotions" about Russian Federation and the British government is doing whatever it can to remind them that the Kremlin is bad.

British Security Minister Ben Wallace spoke to the BBC on Thursday.

He told The Sun: 'They said she had the same symptoms as the Skripals.

Tests later showed they had been exposed to the same nerve agent as the Skripals, although the authorities said it was not yet clear whether it was from the same batch.

He said "we can not attribute this to the same batch at this point" but scientists are investigating. Scientists will be looking into that.

"He was making amusing noises and he was rocking backwards and forwards and there was no response from him, he didn't even know I was there". What they did. And fill in some of the significant gaps that we are trying to pursue.

The Russians have denied these claims, and have accused the United Kingdom of staging the entire thing just to make Russia look bad. "The offer is there".

"They are the ones who could fill in all the clues to keep people safe", he added. On Thursday, President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov again reiterated the Kremlin's dismissal of the British accusations. "So while the public at large are at very low risk from this material, until the source is found there is a remote chance that someone else might come into contact with it". "To see two more people exposed to Novichok in the obviously deeply disturbing and the police, I know, will be leaving no stone unturned in their investigation in relation to what has happened", she said. He said 100 officers had been assigned to the case.

"A Wiltshire police officer is seeking medical advice at Salisbury District Hospital in connection with the ongoing incident in Amesbury".

The couple were both taken to hospital after falling ill at Mr Rowley's home on Saturday.

The attack on the Skripals took place in March in the city of Salisbury.

British authorities confirmed that the Russian-made nerve agent, Novichok, had been used to poison two people Saturday in Amesbury, England.
