Story of Russian novichok attack suspects draws scorn and anger in cathedral city
Tour manager Phil Dargan was marshalling a group of American visitors around the cathedral close in Salisbury, doing his best not to alert them to the fact that they might – just might – be treading in the footsteps of the Skripal attack suspects, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov.
“I try not do discuss it,” said Dargan. “If anything I make a little joke of it. I suggest they don’t pick anything up. But I think it’s better not to say too much. Not that I believe a word of what that pair say. They’re full of rubbish, aren’t they? They weren’t here to look at the cathedral or Stonehenge. Nobody is swallowing that.”
