UK: Salisbury residents react to developments in Novichok case

SOT, journalist: «Would you say that perhaps people are scared over this and...?» SOT, John, local resident: «Well it's not out here. I hear the museum is running very short of visitors. People are bypassing Salisbury, who used to come and visit, coachloads I understand, go Stonehenge, Bath and onwards, rather than coming here.» Salisbury residents shared their thoughts on the latest... Еще developments in the alleged Novichok poisoning case, after an inquest was opened into the death of Dawn Sturgess, on Thursday. «I'll be pleased if they find somebody because we seem to be accusing the Russians without any apparent evidence or really seeing what the motive was, and had that been wrong, it would have caused a huge amount of international tension, if you'd like, for no reason at all,» said Jim. «If it turns out it is the Russian and we can prove it, it kind of, at least, sets that right and I wouldn't say it solves anything, but it kind of resolves something a bit,» he added. John, another local resident, spoke of the impact that the incident had on the city, sayng that the number of visitors has diminished ever since the poisoning happened. The inquest has been postponed until January next year. Investigators are looking into the alleged 'Novichok' poisoning of Dawn Sturgess, who died on July 8 and Charlie Rowley, who regained consciousness on July 10. The couple were taken to Salisbury hospital after being found unconscious and in a critical condition at an address on Muggleton Road in Amesbury on 30 June. Amesbury is a short distance from the UK chemical weapons laboratory Porton Down and the site where Sergei and Yulia Skripal collapsed after being allegedly poisoned by a nerve agent in March.
