UK: May hails Salisbury's 'spirit and resolve' a year on from Skripal incident

United Kingdom, Salisbury
March 4, 2019 at 17:09 GMT +00:00 · Published

UK Prime Minister Theresa May visited the city of Salisbury on Monday, meeting with residents and local business owners as the alleged nerve agent decontamination was completed a year after the Skripal incident

Footage shows May walking the streets of Salisbury and visiting local businesses.

"It has been a difficult year for them, and particularly difficult for the immediate victims of the reckless attack that took place on the streets of Salisbury; the use of a chemical weapon, a nerve agent on our streets," May said. "The decontamination effort has now been completed, that is a key moment for this city in order to move on and recover from what took place last year."

On March 4, 2018, Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury.

Former Russian double agent Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter were found unconscious on the bench in The Maltings shopping centre.

The UK has continued to hold Moscow responsible for the incident, while the Kremlin has denied any involvement in the affair.

Dawn Sturgess, a resident in the nearby town of Amesbury, died of an alleged Novichok poisoning when her partner, Charlie Rowley, gave her a bottle of perfume suspected to have contained the agent used in the attack on 30 June, 2018. Rowley survived the poisoning.
