THE military are preparing to remove the car belonging to a Russian former double agent who was poisoned in Salisbury last Sunday.

Sergei Skripal's red BMW 3 series has been at Ashley Wood Recovery on Churchfields industrial estate since the attack which left Mr Skripal and his daughter in intensive care.

Now a large military loader has arrived at the scene carrying a red steel container which will house the contaminated vehicle.

A military crane, two incident response ambulances, an ambulance and several unmarked white vans are at the scene this afternoon.

Civilian vehicles have been cleared from the area around the garage but people have been allowed access to nearby units on foot.
