Salisbury police rule out Novichok after diners fall ill at Prezzo restaurant

"The main officer in charge said, 'We need to inform you of our investigation, we have two Russians, both showing very similar signs to the nerve agent Novichok".

Wiltshire Police declared a major incident after a man, 42, and a woman, 30, became ill at Prezzo in High Street on Sunday evening.

A witness claimed the man and woman displayed the same symptoms as Sergei and Yulia Skripal who were poisoned by the nerve agent Novichok, reports the Independent.

Tests are continuing and the cordon will remain at the restaurant "as a precautionary measure", officers said on Monday afternoon.

The leaders of the United States, France, Germany and Canada have backed Britain's assessment that the two suspects were Russian military intelligence officers and that the Russian government "almost certainly" approved the attack.

Authorities responded with extreme caution on Sunday in light of the March poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury, and the subsequent poisoning of two others who came into contact with Novichok.

Russian Federation denied any role in the attack.

They spent weeks in hospital before being discharged.

The police force said that because of the previous incidents "tests were immediately carried out which enabled us to rule out that the pair had been exposed to Novichok".

Roads were cordoned off around the Italian restaurant on the corner of High Street and Crane Street as police tried to determine what caused them to fall ill.

Some roads remained cordoned off around the Italian restaurant, which is a short walk from Queen Elizabeth Gardens, which was until recently closed off after 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess was fatally poisoned by the nerve agent. They just said, "we're happy with how you look".

"Rightly the emergency services start with a highly precautionary approach until they know otherwise". "At this stage, it is unclear as to whether or not a crime has been committed".
