Coincidence? – Chief Nurse Of British Army Was First To Arrive At Novichoked Skripal Scene

On March 4, 2018 the British/Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found incapacitated on a bench in Salisbury. The British government asserts that they were affected by a chemical poison of the so called Novichok group. The case led to a diplomatic conflict as Britain accused Russia of an attempt to kill the Skripals. No evidence was provided by the British government to support those accusations. The Skripals have since been vanished.
Today an intriguing new detail of the case came to light. Spire FM, a local radio station in Salisbury, reports of a young woman, Abigail McCourt, who was given a ‘Lifesaver Award’ for her involvement in the Skripal case:
The 16 year old, from Larkhill, was the first to spot two people collapsed on a bench in the Maltings on March 4th and didn’t hesitate to help. Abigail quickly alerted her mum, a qualified nurse, who was nearby and together they gave first aid to the victims until paramedics arrived.
It soon became clear this was no ordinary medical incident, but the poisoning of a former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Yulia, with Novichok.
Immediately following the incident and with the world’s media focused on Salisbury, the pair didn’t want any want press attention and kept their involvement quiet.
But Abby’s mum now feels the time is right for her daughter to be recognised for the “incredible” way she dealt with the scenario. Alison nominated her for the Lifesaver Award at Spire FM’s Local Hero Awards, and the judges were unanimous in their decision that Abigail was a very worthy winner.
Earlier reports mentioned that a ‘military nurse’ had attended to the Skripals. Following the above report Elena Evdokimova checked the name of the young woman’s mothers and found a curiosity:

We were right, it was Alison McCourt who was that” unknown military nurse” who, absolutely randomly, happened to be near the bench where #Skripals collapsed . Spire FM alleges that it was her daughter Abigail alerted her, but no one mentioned her before …
Colonel A L McCourt OBE ARRC QHN – Assistant Head Health Strategy / Chief Nursing Officer (Army) – Senior Health Advisor (Army) Department.
Colonel McCourt was appointed Chief Nursing Officer on February 1 2018, just one month before the Skripal incident happened. Colonel McCourt lives in Larkhill, a garrison town some 11 miles from Salisbury. She is known to visit elsewhere.
