"Since we, alongside the CPS, announced details of the two suspects in September, our investigation has continued at pace.

We remain as determined as ever to identify and bring to justice all those responsible for the reckless acts that left four people critically ill and, tragically, saw Dawn Sturgess lose her life.

We are progressing a number of active lines of enquiry but one of the key things we are still to identify is where the counterfeit perfume bottle was between the time we think it was discarded on the afternoon of 4 March, to when Charlie Rowley says he found it on 27 June. If you think you saw the pink box or bottle anywhere in the Salisbury area during that time, then please get in touch with us."
