Wiltshire police officer in hospital after possible Novichok exposure

Parts of Salisbury had only been reopened two months ago after the poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal

Visiting the town on Sunday, Sajid Javid confirmed the couple were exposed to the same Novichok nerve agent as poisoned former spy Sergei Skripal, his daughter Yulia and Sergeant Nick Bailey in March.

Paramedics were called on Saturday morning to a house in Amesbury, a few miles from Salisbury, after the woman, named by media as Dawn Sturgess, collapsed.

In a statement about the police officer, a spokesman for the hospital said: 'Salisbury District Hospital has seen a number of members of the public who have come to the hospital with health concerns since this incident started and none have required any treatment.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov described the case as "very worrying" but said Russian Federation had no information "about what substances were used and how they were used".

He said it was "completely unacceptable for our people to be either deliberate or accidental targets", and warned about towns in the United Kingdom becoming "dumping grounds" for nerve agents.

Park Sung-hyun Wins KPMG Women's PGA Championship
Charley Hull turned in a 67 on Sunday at Kemper Lakes to finish in a tie for sixth, her third top 10 at the majors this season. Women's Open in 2011, has had top three results at all five women's majors. "I thought the tournament was gone", Jones said.

The nerve agent was developed by the Soviet Miliary during the Cold War.

British police said on Friday that police activity related to the nerve agent poisoning in southern England will last for months, adding that they remain focused on trying to find the source of contamination. "This, of course, fully dissonates with what the British authorities and the British media are saying about Russian Federation". "The British side has never presented any compelling evidence to support the baseless allegations of Russia's involvement", he said.

Police have said there is nothing in the couple's background to suggest they had been deliberately targeted.

"What our expert scientists have determined is that the nerve agent in this incident is the same exact nerve agent that was used back in March", he said. Authorities said Thursday they believe two new victims, who were hospitalized in critical condition Saturday, were not directly targeted but sickened as a outcome of the previous attack.

More than 100 police officers were deployed to try to locate a small vial believed to have contained the nerve agent that sickened the two.

Brent crude firms on drop in USA oil inventories, Iran threat
Last week, US State Department officials announced that they are pushing nations to bring down purchases of Iranian oil to zero. It's no secret that President Donald Trump is not a fan of The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

"The working assumption would be that these are victims of either the outcome of the previous attack, or something else, but not that they were directly targeted", security minister Ben Wallace told the BBC.

The Kremlin was responding to comments made by British Security Minister Ben Wallace, who said earlier Thursday that he's still waiting to hear from the Russian government about the March attack on Skripal.

"I think the working assumption now is that device or that syringe is what has appeared and the residue caused these two people to become ill".

Mr Rowley was then taken to hospital at 3.30pm the same day, which is when police were informed.
