It would be nice to know if it's a liquid or solid and how it can injure us. By skin contact, by breathing the vapour, or what? Does it slowly evaporate and disperse or could there be bits of it lying around in crevices for years?

These facts are all relevant to people who want to take reasonable precautions and they don't give away any 'sensitive' information.

Latest news headline on BBC "The substance was found in one part of Zizzi in Salisbury". That suggests that it is the sort of thing that could be around for some time.
