UK attacks novichok tourist claims

The terms "Russians" and "Salisbury" trended on Twitter in the UK after Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov told the state-funded TV channel Russia Today (RT) they were only in Salisbury on 3 March as tourists to visit the city's cathedral and nearby Stonehenge. Many have mocked the interview in which they said friends had told them to visit "this wonderful town, Salisbury, which has a famous cathedral and 123m spire, and is famous for its clock". They also said they wanted to go to Stonehenge but were prevented from doing so because there was "muddy slush everywhere". Here are some of the most memorable tweets on the social media website: :: Dr Who cybermen :: Actor on 'famous' Skripal door handle :: Salisbury MP hails 'world-class' attractions :: One tweeter is reminded of rapper Jay-Z's visit to Salisbury :: Tripadvisor 'review' :: Cathedral knowledge mocked :: Foreign secretary on 'fake TV shows' :: Cathedral notes spire's height :: Salisbury not Scunthorpe :: Russian Embassy rebukes 'insults'
