Cordons in Salisbury after two fall ill in restaurant 'medical incident'

Новый инцидент в Солсбери

A Prezzo restaurant in Salisbury is on lockdown after a man and woman took ill and fell unconscious.

In March, a former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia, were found collapsed in Salisbury's city center.

Consequently, they contacted the police at 6:45pm.

Wiltshire Police cordoned off the restaurant on High Street and shut down parts of the city centre at 6:45pm in response to the "medical incident" involving a 42-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman.

"As a precautionary measure, the restaurant and surrounding roads have been cordoned off while officers attend the scene and establish the circumstances surrounding what led them to become ill".

Tensions are heightened in the cathedral city because of recent Novichok poisonings.

The scare comes in wake of media reports surrounding the poisoning of Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury this March.

One of the missiles fell in an open area to the west of central Homs city causing a fire in an orchard, Ikhbariya TV said. RIA Novosti news agency, citing a security source, said that Syrian anti-defence systems had countered a rocket attack.

Russian Federation has vehemently denied any involvement in the incidents.

The restaurant, on the High Street in Salisbury, is a short walk from Queen Elizabeth Gardens, which was closed off after Dawn Sturgess was fatally poisoned by novichok at the end of June.

They were released after weeks in hospital. They just said, "we're happy with how you look".

The police force said that because of the previous incidents "tests were immediately carried out which enabled us to rule out that the pair had been exposed to Novichok".

"Rightly the emergency services start with a highly precautionary approach until they know otherwise".

But today detective sergeant Jonathan Davies-Bateman said tests are still being carried out to determine what caused the pair to be unwell as they remain in hospital. It is crucial that this is done methodically.

Police have linked the two incidents and have said Ms Sturgess was killed by the same chemical used in an alleged hit by Russian military intelligence officers on Mr Skripal.

A statement from police following the incident said it was not clear if a crime had been committed and enquiries remained ongoing.
