Police speak out over Russian model's Putin poison claim

Police have stated that the couple were not exposed to a nerve agent

A woman has told how she and her husband fell ill at a Salisbury restaurant, sparking fears they had fallen victim to Novichok poisoning.

Mr King then "infiltrated" the cast and introduced himself to a "clueless" Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Shapiro, who says her father was a "general in the Russian Army who played for the military orchestra", said her husband Alex King, 42, collapsed in the toilet of the Prezzo restaurant and was "foaming at the mouth".

'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'. "Now this has happened", Shapiro told The Sun.

Salisbury District Hospital said "both patients are now medically fit" and have been discharged from hospital.

Wiltshire Police issued a statement saying Mr King's illness was "not being treated as suspicious" but enquiries were ongoing.

It is understood that the couple also tested negative for any other poisons, including rat poison.

Lorna Wilkinson, the director od nursing at Salisbury District Hospital, said: "On Sunday night, we admitted two people to Salisbury District Hospital following an incident in the city centre".

Hospitalized Russian Anna Shapiro said in an interview with The Sun tabloid newspaper that, in her opinion, it was an attempt to poison her for her decision to leave Russia.

In 2004, Mr King pleaded guilty at London's Horseferry Road Magistrates' Court to three counts of distributing indecent photographs or pseudo-photographs of children.

"While this incident did not involve nerve agents, it was still clearly very stressful for our staff who, once again, demonstrated the very best of the NHS". They want me dead as I oppose Putin and have turned my back on my country.

The town where former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found collapsed after being poisoned by the deadly "Novichok" nerve agent earlier this year in March had been cordoned off by Wiltshire Police on Sunday after reports of two people being taken ill.

After weeks in hospital they were released, but in June, two Amesbury residents fell ill after being exposed to the same nerve agent.

Skripal is believed to have identified the names of active Russian spies to European governments.

The Russian government has repeatedly denied the United Kingdom government's allegations that the poisoning of the Skripals in Salisbury or Sturgess and Charlie Rowley in nearby Amesbury had anything to do with the Kremlin.
