Agente de nervos Novichok

March 13, 2018 -- Dois cidadãos britânicos estão em estado crítico depois de expostos a Novichok – o agente de nervos usado no envenenamento de um antigo espião russo e sua filha na cidade de Salisbury em março.

Charlie Rowley, 45, and Dawn Sturgess, 44, fell ill in Amesbury, Wiltshire on June 30, just eight miles (13km) from Salisbury where Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned.

The event was escalated to a “major incident” on July 4 after police confirmed the pair had been exposed to an “unknown substance.” Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner for Counter-Terrorism, Neil Basu, said there had been a “significant development” after officers declared a major incident earlier in the day.

Scotland Yard has since confirmed that the couple were exposed to Novichok following tests carried out by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
