BREAK - @metpoliceuk announce that they believe a "small bottle" found on Wednesday was the source of #novichok that killed a British citizen and left a second critically ill in hospital #Skripal #Salisbury
The small bottle was found during search of Charlie Rowley's house in #Amesbury. Scientists at Porton Down ran tests to confirm a substance it contained is #novichok. Further tests will be conducted to establish whether this is the same batch as was used against the #Skripals
Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, Head of UK Counter Terrorism Policing, said: “This is clearly a significant and positive development."

@BritishArmy @RoyalNavy @RoyalAirForce @DefenceHQ @Smyth_Chris A log of IT woe makes grim reading & counters MoD insistence that there’s no issue. One GP I spoke to said stress caused when patient care is endangered by computers freezing, printers malfunctioning & data being lost is worse than deploying to Afghanistan

@BritishArmy @RoyalNavy @RoyalAirForce @DefenceHQ @Smyth_Chris Doctors say @DefenceHQ data that only 53 “significant event reports” have been recorded out of 4.8 million GP consultations in the past two years fails to capture true picture.
