The United Kingdom’s surge of the previously unheard of phenomenon of acid attacks has seen an average of 15 a week over the past three years, with the vast majority taking place in the crime-struck capital.

There were 2,602 acid attacks in Britain between January 2015 and May 2018, according to government figures accessed by The Mirror.

Comparing that figure, the newspaper notes that between 2007 and 2011 there were just 100 such attacks, or just one a fortnight over the period.

The paper also reports instances of particular attacks that have taken place in recent years, some of which have child victims and even child perpetrators – one being as young as six years old.

Breitbart London has reported on the rising prominence of acid attacks in the United Kingdom and in London in particular, with the city being crowned the world acid attack capital in 2017, with incidents reaching “epidemic” levels, according to medics working on acid victim care.

While the attacks are often severely debilitating and leave victims with what are euphemistically called “life-changing injuries”, Britain saw its first prosecution for an acid attack killing in 2018. The victim, who had just come from the grave of her daughter, died 11 days later.
