Mr Rowley, 45, who collapsed hours after his girlfriend, was released from hospital on Friday after intensive treatment for Novichok poisoning.

Police believe that Charlie Rowley and his partner Dawn Strugess collapsed at a house in Amesbury in Wiltshire on 30 June after they came into contact with a bottle containing the nerve agent.

The police found no evidence that Rowley and Sturgess ever talked with the ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia.

Ms Sturgess, 44, was killed after spraying herself with a dose ten times as strong as that which was daubed on the door handle of Sergei Skripal's home nearby in Salisbury.

He reiterated that the public should not pick up items such as syringes, needles, cosmetics or objects made of plastic, metal, or glass.

Neil Basu, the Met Police's assistant commissioner for specialist operations, said earlier this month his officers were working on the theory that Sturgess and Rowley had found a container housing the substance.

The Director of Nursing, Lorna Wilkinson, also said staff have "decontaminated" Charlie, with Public Health England advising that "he poses no risk to the community".

The poisoning of the Skripals had prompted almost 30 countries to expel more than 150 Russian diplomats in solidarity with the United Kingdom after it blamed Russia for plotting the attack.
