The acting Detective Inspector on the case, Will Whale, said: “We want to speak to these men in connection with the acid assault in Southampton on Friday evening.”

“I would appeal to Billy and Geoffrey to give themselves up now.  We will carry on with our manhunt until we find you, so make it easier on yourselves and come forward.”

He also said: “We consider them to be dangerous individuals and clearly a potential risk to members of the public.”
