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:
"I don't understand why this has happened to me. I feel devastated and am coming to terms with the fact I might have to bear the scars of this cowardly attack for the rest of my life.
"I was at home with my family at the time. It doesn't bear thinking about that this could have been one of the children instead of me as the man didn't even look up when threw it at me.
"He is a coward. Please call the police if you know anything at all."
