They'll be offering the very latest advice to those concerned after the nerve agent attack.

On Saturday (17th March) there's an opportunity to ask any health questions about the nerve agent attack in Salisbury.

Public Health England will be around the Market Square and Saint Thomas's Church from 9am to answer people's concerns.

They're seeking to re-assure residents as investigation work continues in and around the city.

Spire FM asked theses shoppers if they felt re-assured:

The Salisbury Area Board meeting heard on Thursday night that some of the Police cordons will be around for weeks, if not longer, because of the complex investigation underway.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer for Public Health England Dr Jenny Harries said:

"As a community you should be assured that each time new advice that is relevant to public health we're going through that continuous risk assessment and we will continue to provide any updates.

"People should be assured there are three patients at Salisbury District Hospital, they are from the very first exposure on the Sunday. We've seen no cases of public health harm since then."

Last weekend further health advice was provided to those who'd visited Zizzi's restaurant and The Mill pub in The Maltings, Salisbury between 1:30pm Sunday 4th March - 9:00pm Monday 5th March 2018
