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

Assistant Police Commissioner Neil Basu, Britain's top counterterrorism officer, told local residents this week that Novichok could remain active for 50 years if it kept in a sealed container.

Following those tests, scientists have now confirmed the substance in the bottle is Novichok.

This was stated in Scotland Yard, reports "UKRINFORM" with reference to The Guardian.

Previously the force has said only that it was found in a "small bottle".

He added searches were being hampered by the hot weather as investigators had to wear protective clothing and were limited to the amount of time they could spend in special suits because of the heat.

Officers will be looking to identify any other potential sites or sources of contamination, as well as gathering further evidence.

Police warned searches of the area could last months.

Rita Bhaduri passes away at 62!
In an interview to The Times of India in 2011, Bhaduri had said that she still felt she had a lot to learn. Veteran TV and film actress Rita Bhaduri has died at the age of 62 after being in a hospital a week ago.

"The work being carried out is extremely important".

The books will also be available at any future public meetings.

And it was "absolutely not the brother I know", he said. "This shouldn't be taken for granted and their bravery and dedication is remarkable".

The United Kingdom has invited independent chemical-weapons experts to visit next week and independently confirm the nerve agent suspected in the case.

The 19-year-old son of a British woman who died after being exposed to a nerve agent first developed by the Soviet Union has called on U.S. President Donald Trump to discuss his mother with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the leaders' summit in Finland.

A post-mortem examination is due to take place on Tuesday in a bid to discover any additional information.

Sturgess died on Sunday, while Rowley has regained consciousness and is no longer in a critical condition.

Almost 100 detectives from the Counter Terrorism Policing Network are investigating the case alongside Wiltshire Police, the release said.
