Public health officials say the risk to the public is low, but advised people not to pick up any odd items.

Police briefly cordoned off part of the English city of Salisbury on Thursday (July 12) near where former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found poisoned, then removed the barriers after discovering no cause for alarm.

They shut Castle Street between Blue Boar Row and Chipper Lane, but have now confirmed the incident has been dealt with.

Wiltshire police and crime commissioner Angus Macpherson has asked policing minister Nick Hurd for more help to deal with the ongoing investigations into nerve agent poisonings in Salisbury and Amesbury.

"There was a very heavy police presence there along with the fire service and ambulances".

An eyewitness has stated that the man, believed to be in his 30s, was a "local homeless guy" who was "sat on the floor, completely conscious, talking".
