PM May’s Twitter account pays tribute to wrong English city on anniversary of Salisbury poisoning — RT UK News

UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s Twitter account attempted to pay tribute to the town of Salisbury on the anniversary of the alleged Novichok poisoning – but used a picture of the wrong English city.

May commemorated the “devastating and reckless incident” with a tweet that read: “I hope that moving forward Salisbury will once again be known for being a beautiful, welcoming English city and not for the events of 4 March 2018.”

Salisbury has fought back so well from such a devastating and reckless incident – a testament to the resolve, forbearance and positivity of the community.

The only problem? The quote was accompanied by a lovely picture of St. John the Evangelist’s Church in the nearby city of Bath – not, the presumably intended, Salisbury Cathedral.

Eagle-eyed journalist Matt Chorley was first to notice the blunder and quickly captured the gaffe before it was deleted and replaced with a less confusing picture of No. 10 Downing St.

A spokesman for the PM admitted to the mistake, telling Reuters that the wrong picture was used following a “human error” and was corrected as soon as possible.
