THE new date for Pre-Inquest Review into the death of Dawn Sturgess has been set as Tuesday, February 18.

It will take place at 10am at Salisbury Law Courts on Wilton Road. 

The mum-of-three, 44, died at Salisbury District Hospital after being exposed to Novichok in July 2018.

Miss Sturgess never regained consciousness after being exposed by Novichok, and died when her life support was switched off, the inquest opening heard in July last year.

The bottle, believed to be the source of the deadly nerve agent, was later found in Ms Sturgess's boyfriend Charlie Rowley's home in Amesbury, senior coroner David Ridley said. 

The coroner decided to adjourn the October 2019 Pre-Inquest review to allow sufficient time to give appropriate and careful consideration of submissions relating to “scope” before handing down a written ruling. 

This date is subject to change.
