A woman who had acid thrown in her face as she opened her front door in Romford, London says she does not understand why a stranger attacked her and is appealing for anyone who may know something to contact police:
A woman has been left scarred for life after having acid thrown in her face by a stranger as she answered her front door in Romford, London.
It is believed Tara aged 28, answered her door shortly before 9.00pm on 30 April to a man asking for someone called Michelle.
A short time later, the man returned and when Tara answered the door he squirted an acidic substance in her face.
The victim managed to close the door and rinse her face with water as she called an ambulance.
Tara was taken to an East London hospital then transferred to a specialist burns unit where she remains in a stable condition.
Police have released an e-fit of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the acid attack.
