Police investigating a nightclub stampede in Northampton which left two young women dead last October are launching a new appeal for information.
The tragedy occurred at the Lava & Ignite nightclub when approximately 1,500 young people rushed toward the exits at the end of the night.
Northampton University student Nabila Nanfuka, who was 22, and Laurenne Danielle Jackson, who was 19, were killed by the stampede on the evening of Tuesday 18 October.
Officers are contacting universities across the country with the hope of identifying the remaining key witnesses who were at the Wickedest Wickedest club night.
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.
Police say they have spoken to over 1,000 witnesses and reviewed several hours of CCTV footage, but there are still key witnesses they need to reach:
Detective Inspector Louise Hemingway praised many of the people at the event for their bravery and kindness during the crush:
"Many of the people attending Wickedest Wickedest were extremely brave and courageous during the incident, showing huge compassion and support for the people who were injured and helping them to safety.
"We are coming up to a year on from the tragic event and are hoping this appeal may jog people’s memories and they may feel that they are now able to speak to us.
"Please contact us if you’re in the poster or CCTV clip or recognise anyone – a photo or video can tell us many things but only the people who were there on the night can tell us first hand.”
