Kim Rogerson faces several charges linked to the alleged incident near a restaurant connected to the probe.

A man has been charged after police officers manning cordons put in place in Salisbury following the nerve agent attack were allegedly abused and assaulted.

Kim Rogerson, 56, of Wyndham Road, Salisbury was arrested on Monday afternoon in Castle Street, close to the cordon around Zizzi’s restaurant.

A force spokesman said: “He has been charged with assaulting a police officer, assaulting a police staff member, being drunk and disorderly in a public place and a racially-aggravated public order offence.

“He has been released on conditional bail and is due to appear at Salisbury Magistrates’ Court next month.”
