Police officers investigating the deaths of two young women at the Wickedest Wickedest event at Northampton’s Lava & Ignite nightclub in October last year are launching a new witness appeal.
22-year-old Nabila Nanfuka and 19-year-old Laurene-Danielle Jackson, who were both students, died during the crush in the club as people rushed to the exits.
Officers are contacting universities across the country with the hope of identifying the remaining key witnesses. The police are stressing that they do not suspect people in the photos issued of committing a crime, instead they want to talk to them as witnesses to the event.
A poster, using a photo from inside the club as the crush was taking place on a staircase, is being circulated to universities alongside new CCTV clips.
Nabila Nanfuka was studying leisure and tourism at the University of Northampton when she died on 19 October last year. Laurene-Danielle Jackson was also a student, studying psychology and criminology when she died at Leicester Glenfield Hospital on 6 November.
Her parents Angela Ferdinand and Ronato Jackson have released a statement appealing for anyone with any new information to come forward.
