Cordons in Salisbury after two fall sick in restaurant ‘medical incident’

A number of Salisbury roads have been cordoned off as at least one person has fallen suddenly ill

Personnel in hazmat suits walk away after securing a tent covering a bench in the Maltings shopping centre in Salisbury, where former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found critically ill by exposure to a nerve agent in Salisbury, U.K. on March 8, 2018.

"Police were called by the ambulance service to Prezzo, High Street, Salisbury at 6.45pm today following a medical incident involving two people", Wiltshire Police said.

Wiltshire Police said it was trying to establish what led them to fall ill.

British authorities said a European arrest warrant had been issued for the two Russians.

It has been claimed other diners at the restaurant have been taken to hospital, where doctors have told them they may need blood tests. The condition of victims is not reported, the area is cordoned off. They believed the man and woman's symptoms "seemed consistent with Novichok poisoning", a source told the Press Association.

"We can now confirm that there is nothing to suggest that novichok is the substance", Wildshire Police said in a statement.

BBC reporter Emma Volney, who is outside the police cordon, said there were five ambulances, a dozen police officers, and members of the fire service in attendance.

Russian aircraft vanishes near Syria during Israeli, French strikes
The US is insisting that a Syrian government anti-aircraft battery was accidently responsible for bringing down the Russian Il-20. In November 2015, Turkey shot down a Russian warplane near the Syrian border, triggering a severe crisis in ties with Moscow .

Wiltshire Police said they would not comment on the nationality of the two people.

Russian Federation has strongly denied involvement in the Skripal attack, sparking a diplomatic row that has led to tit-for-tat diplomatic expulsions between Britain and its allies and Russian Federation.

Amanda Worne, who was at the restaurant, said a police officer told her the couple who fell ill were Russian.

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

Officers formally linked the attack on the Skripals to events in nearby Amesbury where Dawn Sturgess, 44, and her partner Charlie Rowley, 45, were exposed to the same nerve agent.

The case has been in the headline since last week when Scotland Yard revealed CCTV of two men, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, they accused of being the would-be assassins who travelled from Moscow to carry out the attack on Mr Skripal.

British officials say the Skripals were poisoned with Novichok, a military-grade chemical weapon that was developed in the Soviet Union, and blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin's government for the attack.
