"Police came to the door last night around 6pm and read a notice that the road was going to be closed off and we had to move vehicles from Tudor Close.
"In the road you can see one of those large lorries recovering one of the vehicles." Lydia Wade, 34, lives close to DS Bailey's home.
One of the low loaders was seen reversing into Tudor Close.
At around 2.15pm, one of the trucks drove away from Tudor Close with a vehicle on it. A spokesperson from the Met Police said: "The military is assisting police to remove a number of vehicles and items from areas of Dorset following the incident in Salisbury.
The police investigation, Operation Lime, crossed into Dorset on Wednesday as the truck that towed away the Skripals' car from the upper floor of a Sainsbury's car park was recovered from Gillingham.
And on Thursday, the focus of the investigation turned to Alderholt.
"The Ministry of Defence regularly assists the emergency services and local authorities in the UK.
"Military assistance will continue as necessary during this investigation." MP Simon Hoare, who represents North Dorset, visited residents in both Gillingham and Alderholt yesterday. "There are a few people in hazchem suits, but many officials, including police officers, are walking around in their normal attire," he said.
MILITARY personnel and police were in a quiet village in East Dorset yesterday as part of a investigation into the poisoning of a former spy.
A main road through Alderholt was closed as officials recovered a vehicle thought to belong to a hero policeman who lives in the village.
