Outside the Mill pub, Frank Carter, agrees.

“Salisbury is out of the way isn’t it,” says the 87-year-old, who has lived there his whole life. “You wouldn’t expect it here.”

But many remain seemingly unruffled by the news.

“I’m not nervous for my own safety,” says Sue Doe, smoking a cigarette a stone’s throw from the closed Zizzi restaurant.


“You’re not from the telly are you? I don’t want to be on the telly,” said a man who did not want to be named.

“There’s cameramen and [media] on every street corner, you can’t move for them.”

For others, the publicity is a welcome moment in the spotlight.

“Well, it’s definitely put Salisbury on the map,” quips Doris Bright, before going about her day.
