UK has one of highest rates of acid attacks in the world, police reveal:

An average of two attacks a day are recorded by forces across the country

The UK now has one of the highest number of recorded acid attacks per person of any country in the world, and the figure is expected to rise further, police have warned.

Senior officers believe the horrific crimes are not always being reported, meaning the unprecedented number of known assaults using corrosive substances may be a fraction of the true total.

More than 400 such attacks were recorded in the six months to April – an average of two a day.
