Calls to reclassify deadly slimming aid DNP as explosive
A father wants to see DNP, a substance contained in diet pills which led to his daughter's death, reclassified as an explosive substance.
Doug Shipsey is calling for a change in the law after his daughter Beth, 21, from Worcester, died after taking tablets containing the industrial chemical in February 2017.
Mr Shipsey believes that forcing people to have a licence to possess it could restrict its sale.
Explosive expert Dr Sidney Alford says just 35ml of DNP can be used as an explosive.
