Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.”
