Charlie Rowley, one of two Britons poisoned with the nerve agent Novichok last month, was released from hospital on Friday, Public Health England said.

Rowley, 45, and Dawn Sturgess, 44, fell ill after being exposed to the poison in southwest England, close to where Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were attacked with the same substance in March.

Sturgess died earlier this month and her death is being treated as murder.

"Mr Rowley is well enough to leave hospital. For the avoidance of doubt, Mr Rowley's discharge creates no risk to anyone in the community," Paul Cosford, Director of Health Protection and Medical Director at Public Health England said in a statement.
