Attacks on people involving acids or other corrosives are a serious matter that can result in huge distress and life changing injuries. We are working with the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead to better understand the nature and scale of these crimes. On 4 July we hosted a joint event bringing together a range of partners including police, retailers, health professionals, relevant departments and agencies to agree what further action can be taken to prevent these kinds of attacks.
