NOVICHOK-HIT DINER REOPENS
DEFIANT Salisbury residents returned to the Italian restaurant at the centre of the city’s Novichok attack yesterday.
Former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia collapsed after dining at Zizzi in the city centre in March in a chemical weapons attack which shocked the world.
After eight months closed during the probe and decontamination, the restaurant welcomed diners back at lunchtime.
Lynda Davis, 67, and her brother Ian Rimmey were among the first customers into the new-look restaurant.
Ms Davis said: “We’re not concerned at all about the Novichok – if you live in Salisbury you just get used to it. It’s absolutely disgusting what the Russians did, coming over here and attacking Sergei and his daughter with such a terrible poison.
“Thankfully it’s all over know and we can get back to normal.”
