Sussex Police supporting agencies investigating East Sussex gas cloud

With the investigation into the gas cloud that hit the East Sussex coastline on Sunday (August 28) now focusing predominantly on the possibility of a ship as a source, Sussex Police involvement is now only in support of other agencies.
The Environment Agency, who look into onshore sources, has said that to date they have not identified anything that could be attributed to the mist. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency, who are undertaking similar investigations offshore, has said that investigations are continuing and may take several days to conclude.
It is understandable that the public want answers; however, all agencies involved have asked that investigators are given time to carry out their work rather than speculate on possible causes.
