Police have released a new image of a woman they are hunting after anti-vaxxers stole test kits and dumped them in a bin as they rampaged thorough an NHS centre earlier this week.
Activists stormed the site in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, and marched through the facility where protesters tore down signs, threw traffic cones and appeared to steal medical supplies.
Demonstrators were filmed shouting ‘shame on you’ repeatedly at testing site staff.
Officers believe the woman in an image they have released has information about what happened.
Police say they have identified 38 witnesses and are obtaining statements and their accounts. Over four hours of footage is being reviewed.
An investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made at this time.

Chief Inspector Graham Hadley, of Thames Valley Police, said: ‘We are carrying out a thorough investigation into the protest that happened [on Wednesday].
‘As part of our enquiries, we believe the woman pictured may have information that could help our investigation.
‘If you recognise this woman, or if it is you, please get in touch with us by making a report online or calling 101, quoting reference 43210583457.
‘Furthermore, we are also continuing to appeal for witnesses to this incident, anyone who has information or video footage, to please come forward and make a report to us if you haven’t already. You can do so by using the methods above.
‘If anyone wishes to remain anonymous, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or via their website.’
During the protest, some activists held placards bearing slogans including ‘BBC: Just a bunch of WOKERS!’, ‘Fear is the currency of control’ and ‘Boris lied, people died’, while others threw traffic cones and pushed over signs.
Cries of ‘You murdering b****rds’ and ‘The wind is changing’ were heard as the crowd marches into the site, and one of the demonstrators appears to pick up testing equipment before carrying it out of one of the site’s tents.

The social media user who uploaded footage of the incident, which has been viewed 10,000 times, claimed that one protester ‘stole testing equipment and dumped it in a bin outside the centre’.
Tory MP Alicia Kearns branded the scenes ‘utterly appalling’, adding: ‘Thank you to all the volunteers and staff who deserve so much better than this shameful, self-aggrandising nonsense.’
It came on the same day that Boris Johnson visited a vaccination centre in Milton Keynes, urging people to get tested before New Year’s Eve festivities.
