Tower Hamlets mayor John Biggs sought to reassure residents about their concerns.
He said: “We should be reassured that following tests, experts deemed that the room was safe and that it posed no risk to the public.”
Tests carried out on May 4 in the hotel room where the suspects stayed in, showed the room was contaminated with Novichok.
However, the levels were below that which would cause concern for public health.
Additional tests carried out on the room have produced negative results.
