Counter-terror police investigating the Russian nerve agent attacks have shut down a 14th century tavern after speaking to Amesbury survivor Charlie Rowley.

The Cloisters Pub in Salisbury has been closed off as officers as they trace the steps of Mr Rowley and his girlfriend Dawn Sturgess, who died last month.

The tavern is a five minute walk from Queen Elizabeth Gardens, where is was reported the couple found a glass bottle which may have contained the nerve agent.

It is the latest cordon to be put up by officers as they trace Ms Sturgess’ final footsteps before she accidentally came into contact with Novichok.
