No pallbearers for her coffin at the funeral
Dawn Sturgess, 44, died on Sunday 8 July 2018 after handling an item contaminated with the nerve agent Novichok on 30 June. Her partner Charlie Rowley, 45, who was also taken ill after being exposed to the nerve agent, recovered after treatment in hospital. Rowley said the deadly nerve agent took just 15 minutes to poison Dawn Sturgess after she sprayed the "oily" substance on to her wrists believing it was perfume he had given her as a gift.
The Metropolitan Police launched an investigation into the murder of Dawn Sturgess. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called for a “full and thorough police investigation” to “establish the facts” and “bring those responsible to justice”.
