Twitter’s best reaction to suspects’ interview

The Salisbury poisoning suspects’ denial of any plan to target a former Russian spy and his daughter has drawn much scepticism online.

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 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”.
