Salisbury Low-key Mode After Poisoning – streets lacking shoppers and tourists. Hope it doesn’t last.

Since former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and daughter Yulia were found collapsed on a bench in Salisbury a subdued mood has spread across the city.

Both had been exposed to a nerve agent and are seriously ill in hospital.  Not yet known how it happened.  Likely the poisoning came from food or drink.

Police Officer, Det. Sgt Nick Bailey who was first on scene, is also in hospital. He has issued a statement through his family saying that he doesn’t want to be called a hero. He believes there were a number of heroes on that day.

The pub and restaurant are two of five sites in Salisbury focused on by investigators.

Salisbury is one of the country’s biggest tourist centres.  The poison incident could have an affect on future business in the area.

Tourism is a main trade for the city.  Visitors pour into the region to catch a glimpse of Salisbury Cathedral. It looks fantastic.  But not too many people around to see it.

There’s less activity on the streets as locals give their reaction. Have you been to visit?  Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.  Thank you
