UK police declare 'major incident' near Salisbury after 2 found unconscious

 

A general view shows the main entrance to Salisbury District Hospital in Salisbury, southern England, on March 6, 2018 where a man and a woman remain in critically condition which sparked an ongoing major incident which started on March 4. British police raced on March 6 to identify an unknown substance that left a former Russian double agent fighting for his life, in what a senior lawmaker said bore the hallmarks of a Russian attack. Moscow said it had no information about the "tragic" collapse of the man, identified by the media as Sergei Skripal, in the quiet southern English city of Salisbury on Sunday, but said it would be happy to cooperate if requested by British authorities. Specialist officers from the counter-terrorism squad are helping investigate the incident, which also left a 33-year-old woman -- reported to be Skripal's daughter Yulia -- in a critical condition in what is feared to be a poison plot. / AFP PHOTO / Chris J Ratcliffe (Photo credit should read CHRIS J RATCLIFFE/AFP/Getty Images)
