Incident in Salisbury treated as non-suspicious

Alert message sent 18/09/2018 18:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Tests have confirmed that the two patients who fell ill in Prezzo restaurant in Salisbury on Sunday evening were not exposed to any kind of nerve agent.

Following test results, at this stage, this is not being treated as suspicious.

The pair, a 42-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman, were taken to Salisbury District Hospital after emergency services were called to the High Street restaurant at 6.45pm on Sunday (16 September 2018).

Enquiries into what caused the pair to become unwell are still ongoing.

However, due to the recent events in the south of the county, scientific tests were undertaken to establish if they had come into contact with Novichok, or any other type of nerve agent.

These tests have concluded that this was not the case.

Therefore, at this stage, we are not linking their illness to the recent poisonings in Salisbury and Amesbury.
