The hunt for two Old Malden men linked to a Southampton acid attack has been renewed with police officers warning "there is no hiding place".

Brothers Billy Nathan Midmore, 22, and Geoffrey Christopher Midmore, 26, are wanted by police after the attack on a woman last Friday night (September 18).

Billy Midmore, of Sheephouse Way, Old Malden, has previously appeared in court over driving, drug and cash seizure offences.

As part of the manhunt Hampshire Police officers have carried out searches in the Medway area of Kent and are working with the Metropolitan Police to find the pair.

The 37-year-old woman is now out of hospital but her injuries are said to be life-changing.

CCTV released today showed the brothers in McDonald's at Swaythling after catching a train to Basingstoke. They were seen at 2.44pm on Sunday, September 21 - about 36 hours after the attack looking "relaxed, confident and smirking".

Detective Inspector Will Whale said: "So far, the public has been fantastic in coming forward with information to help us, but we need you to help us find these men who we believe were involved in this horrendous attack.

"Our message to them and to those who may be helping them is there is no hiding place. Anyone who is harbouring the Midmore's or has assisted them since the weekend will be found.

"If you have helped them run, given them a vehicle, financed them, or even communicated with them without telling us, you are now involved in the investigation.

"You will be arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. We urge you to give them up now."

Billy has been described as white, 5ft 8in, with blue eyes and a scar on his left arm. He is said to speak with a London accent and is of stocky build.

His brother Geoffrey is white, 5ft 1in with green eyes and a scar on the right side of his face. He is of stocky build and has a tattoo on his hand.

If you think you have seen them or know where they are, do not approach them, call police on 101 immediately, quoting Operation Interstate.
