A series of searches, carried out in a multi-agency effort across three premises in England, have uncovered a significant amount of what is believed to be 2,4 dinitrophenol, (commonly known as DNP). DNP is known to be sold illegally online and in gyms, as an aid to weight loss. Consumption of DNP has resulted in eight deaths in the UK since 2015.
