UK: Salisbury residents told to wash clothes after nerve agent probe

SOT, local resident: “I think I came — was it Monday? — and I was walking past Zizzi's and I was walking past here and I came back the second day and it was all cornered off. And it's kind of like I was near that area and now it’s all covered, so it’s like, am I safe in Salisbury? And I think that’s what is effecting businesses around here. People don’t feel safe and I know the shops down here, G... Еще&T and places like that, have really struggled, with Mother’s Day as well.” Following news that the nerve agent used on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal was found in a Zizzi's restaurant, Salisbury residents were warned to wash their clothes by authorities on Sunday. Local residents had mixed feelings about the police and emergency services response. Some felt compelled to go and wash their clothes, with a better-safe-than-sorry approach, whereas others were indifferent. Mike Witt, a local, explained authorities’ stance by saying: “If somebody gets ill in two months, who is going to be blamed? They’ve got to be ultra-cautious.” However, Katy Sergeant, another local, said people should “carry on as normal”. Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter are in critical condition in Salisbury District Hospital after being found unconscious on a park bench last Sunday. Police confirmed they are treating the matter as attempted murder with a nerve agent.
