"For the avoidance of any doubt, although readily available online for very little money, this stuff is illegal in the UK and will result in a trip to meet your friendly custody sergeant at the police station if you are found in possession of any.”

The spray irritates the eyes, causing a burning sensation, pain, and temporary blindness.
