Investigation now focuses on 'family' home between Wilton Road and Devizes Road away from the city centre.

  • Investigators are searching Sergei's home on Christie Miller Road, Salisbury.
  • Russia has denied any involvement in 'poison' attack on former spy.

There's a new theory now in the poisoning and attempted murder of former Russian double agent in Salisbury.

One theory is that 66 year old Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who's 33, were both contaminated at his house off Wilton Road.

The link-detached property is crawling with specialist forensic officers looking for the source of the deadly toxin.

Sergei, an ex-Russian spy and his daughter, Yulia, are said to still be in a "very serious" condition following a nerve agent attack in Salisbury.

This latest theory surrounding Skripal's home address comes as the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, visited Salisbury's Maltings Shopping centre where Sergei and Yulia were found slumped and unconscious on Sunday (4th March).

HUNT FOR INITIAL CRIME SCENE?

Several areas in Salisbury remain under Police a cordon, including part of the Maltings Shopping centre, and Zizzi's pizza restaurant, and The Mill pub alongside the banks of the river Avon.

"SILENT ASSASSIN":

Salisbury's MP John Glen has been describing the attack as a 'silent assassination'. This incident, which has gripped the city, is being treated as attempted murder.
