After being taped off and then having a tent set up around them?
What's the relevance? Are police considering that Sergei or his daughter poisoned the wife/mother and son/brother?
Why are Hazmat wearing individuals making public appearances nearly a week later as they remove a bench and secure objects in the area.
“The investigation in Salisbury continues today (March 9/2018) with 180 chemical-warfare-trained members of the British military assisting police in removing objects, like the park bench, (slumped Sergei and daughter were found on bench March 03/2018) and securing vehicles that the Skripals came in contact with on Sunday.”

“Sergei Skripal, a 66-year-old ex-colonel with Russian military intelligence, was discovered slumped over and unresponsive on a bench outside of a shopping mall in Salisbury, England, last Sunday, alongside his unconscious 33-year-old daughter, Yulia.
But now police have switched their focus to Skripal's house nearby, cordoning off the property and erecting forensic tents in his garden, trying to establish if the nerve agent was delivered at home — perhaps inadvertently”
“Perhaps inadvertently “ So did Sergei Skripal poison himself? Did his daughter poison him unintentionally? I don’t know? Could someone who attended the house have poisoned them?
“Almost two dozen first responders and medical staff came in contact with Skripal and his daughter in the minutes after they fell violently ill. But only one, Det.-Sgt. Nick Bailey, also became sick from the deadly toxin. And Bailey was the first policeman to visit Skripal's home.”
Let me get this straight? Almost two dozen first responders and medical staff come in contact with Skripal and his daughter and not a one of them become ill.
In fact, the only person to become sick from what ever this is was the first policeman to visit Skripal’s home. When did the policeman visit the home? Could he have been the assassin?
I can’t see why not at this point in time?
Former London police chief Ian Blair told BBC radio that the policeman's illness is an important "clue." And the Times newspaper reports that investigators are now examining whether Yulia, who was visiting from Moscow, might have unknowingly brought the nerve agent along, perhaps hidden in some food or drink, or maybe a gift.The media keeps claiming that Sergei was targeted with a deadly toxin but..
“Investigators said they had identified the specific agent, but were not disclosing that information. “
If no information regarding what may or may not have been used has been disclosed then all claims of this being a nerve agent or whatever really boils down to wild speculation.
Probably because one would end up deathly ill/dead before being able to, or while, administering the nerve agent against the intended target?
Which takes us back to the one lone police officer who was sickened at the home of Sergei- Hmmmmmm??????
UPDATE March 10/2018:
Precedent for police involvement in state sponsored assassination, excerpted.
Also there is precedence in police being involved in this type of activity..
" In 1989, the anti-apartheid activist Frank Chikane was poisoned by South African agents who sprayed his underwear with a nerve agent while he was travelling through an airport. Chikane survived and the former South African police minister and his police chief were both convicted of the attempted murder"
