A Wiltshire police officer who was poisoned by novichok in Salisbury last year has completed a marathon in order to raise money for the hospital that saved his life.
Nick Bailey was poisoned by the nerve agent after attending the home of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in March 2018.
The detective sergeant quickly fell ill and spent the following two and a half weeks in intensive care at Salisbury District Hospital.
At the weekend, Nick completed the Salisbury Marathon to raise money for a local charity and recognise the staff who helped nurse him back to health.
I took quite a knock with the poisoning, both mentally and physically and I wanted to have something to work towards.
His efforts were recognised on Twitter by his boss, Wiltshire Police chief constable Kier Pritchard, as well as the CEO of Salisbury District Hospital, Cara Charles-Barks.
