Military remove ambulances and police cars for testing


(ABC TODAY) Police cars and ambulances are among dozens of items being removed from Salisbury for testing in the hunt to find those responsible for poisoning a former spy and his daughter.

Almost 200 specialists from the RAF and Marines began removing contaminated materials to be sent for analysis at the nearby Porton Down defence laboratory, seven days after the attempted assassination of Sergei Skripal, the Russian double agent.

On Saturday screens and tents were erected across the area as troops removed vehicles linked to the poisoning to test for deadly nerve agents.
