Saturday, 22 July 2017

Former gang member known as ‘Off’ from Newham (pictured top) said his gang favoured acid acid – dispensed in squeezable bottles – as a weapon. Pictured are acid attack victims Isobella Fraser (left), Jabed Hussain (centre) and Resham Khan (bottom right). Off said acid or ‘face melter’ as it is more descriptively known is a ‘win-win situation,’ because it terrifies victims, it’s cheap and it is not illegal to carry. An eye or nose can disintegrate in seconds in an acid attack Often, victims never recover from the psychological damage.
