Updates on the Salisbury incident

Updated: 16 May at 3.44pm

Following the incident in Salisbury on Sunday 4 March, one inpatient (a man in his 60s) remains in the care of Salisbury District Hospital after being exposed to a nerve agent.

The health of this individual is improving and he is no longer in a critical condition.

Public Health England has issued advice for those who were in The Mill pub or Zizzi restaurant in Salisbury on Sunday 4 or Monday 5 March 2018 and this can be viewed on theĀ Public Health England website.

Following this advice a number of people have come forward, at the hospital, at GP practices and via the NHS 111 phone number. The NHS is not keeping a tally of every interaction but as identified above only three people have been admitted as a result of the incident.

Based on current evidence, Public Health England is advising that the risk to the general public from this substance has not changed and remains low.
