Man in Salisbury 'illness' hoaxed Prince Charles

Police cordon off the restaurant in Salisbury

"I want to thank them for rising to the occasion yet again", she added. The pair, Alex King, 42, and his Russian-born wife Anna Shapiro, 40, had been rushed to Salisbury District Hospital after raising the alarm at around 6.45pm.

The aristocratic trickster, self-styled Lord Edward Davenport, was sentenced to eight years in jail for being the "ring master" in a £4.5million fraud.

'Now Mr King has left hospital we will interview him.

It has subsequently emerged that Mr King was involved in a prank on the Prince of Wales at a film premiere in 2006, making his way into a line-up of celebrities greeting the royal. "Russian Federation is capable of anything", she told The Sun. "She appeared to be very flattered".

According to the Salisbury Journal, Shapiro, a model, claimed her husband had begun to feel unwell towards the end of their meal at the Italian restaurant.

Ms Shapiro, who describes herself on her Instagram account as a "London model living life to the max", insisted on Tuesday she and her spouse had been targeted by the Kremlin. "They have frightened me".


The ostensible poisoning of Mr King and Ms Shapiro, who styles herself as an opponent of Putin, sparked a full-scale emergency on Sunday night.

Investigators probing the nerve agent scare at a Salisbury restaurant are set to consider if it was the result of an elaborate hoax, it has been reported.

The restaurant released a statement confirming the chemical "strychnine" is not used in Prezzo in Salisbury and that this had been verified through "independent technical support".

"This is an isolated incident". But "they made it clear they were not linking the Prezzo incident to the poisonings of the Skripals and the Salisbury couple Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess, all of which have been blamed on Moscow", says The Guardian.

Emergency services initially said the man and woman had symptoms "consistent with Novichok poisoning" but this has now been eliminated as the cause.

They have since been discharged after testing negative for the nerve agent, used by Russian Federation to poison a former double agent and his daughter in the same city.
