>> A British man poisoned by Novichok last month has been released from the hospital.>> Charlie has been through an appalling experience most of us could never imagine.>> Charlie Rowley and his partner Dawn Sturgess fell ill after coming into contact with Novichok during a night out in Amesbury in Southwest England.

Sturgess died after the incidents, and her death has been treated as murder. Amesbury is near Salisbury, where Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were attacked with a substance in March. Britain has blamed Russia for the poisoning of the Skripals and has identified the poison as Novichok, a deadly group of nerve agents developed by the Soviet military in the 70s and 80s.

The Skripal case led to the biggest expulsion of Russian diplomats since the height of the Cold War. The Kremlin had denied involvement and retaliated by expelling Western diplomats.
