“To see two more people exposed to Novichok in the UK is obviously deeply disturbing and the police, I know, will be leaving no stone unturned in their investigation,” May told reporters in Germany where she was meeting Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“My thoughts are with the people of Wiltshire,” she added, referring to the county where the victims live and where the latest incident took place.
