    I do hope she will recover very soon. And, if the man arrested is found guilty, that he will serve a very long sentence, and then be deported if he is not a British citizen. Such a vicious crime really deserves a life sentence.

      Eve’s Apple Horrendous, the level of sadistic violence perpetrated against this young woman is evil incarnate.In parts of the world so called acids attacks are endemic let us in the U.K make very sure a life sentence is the only verdict the British People will accept for this sick, vicious misogynistic man.In doing so we are showing our support for this victim, ensuring also this serves as a deterrent.Violence against Biological Females MUST END.

      I imagine it’s good practice to remove the story once the person being sought is found, especially if they were not actually connected to the case. I wouldn’t want my face next to a “Wanted for Acid Attack Questioning” story in perpetuity!
