A man who was left with life-changing injuries in an East London acid attack has been telling this programme about his ordeal. Jameel Mukhtar was in his car with his cousin Resham Khan when a toxic substance was sprayed through the window.

There’s been a steep rise in acid attacks in recent years – In 2015 – the Metropolitan Police said there were 261 such attacks, but last year that soared to 454.
