Theresa May made a schoolboy error marking the first anniversary of the Novichok attack
Here’s so-called prime minister Theresa May marking the first anniversary of the Salisbury Cathedral Novichok attack on Twitter.
Except as the Guardian’s Jim Waterson was keen to point out, there was an unfortunate schoolboy error.
That’s Bath, not Salisbury. At least the Russian poisoning suspects could recognise the correct church spire. pic.twitter.com/moXlDioDwk

Yep, sounds about right. And here are some of our favourite things people said about it on Twitter.
Is Chris Grayling head of geography?

That’s St John’s Catholic church on Manvers St too, not even the Abbey

Well, it does say moving forward. It appears to be moving forward in a northwesterly direction for approximately 39 miles.

Dominic Raab helping out on the Geography!

The tweet was later deleted, May’s office deciding to play it very, very safe by doing this.
At least they managed to get their own front door right, except some people weren’t letting it go (and quite right too).
Why have you replaced the picture of Bath, with a picture of Downing Street. Do you not have a picture of Salisbury??? Do you even know what Salisbury looks like or where it is? pic.twitter.com/wMKWnRouv9
