Police in London have 1,000 kits to help with acid attacks. The number of attacks is increasing. Two weeks ago, there were five on one night. The number of attacks doubled in London in three years. A plastic surgeon said the number of attacks is at "epidemic" levels. He said the number has exploded.

The acid attack kits have special clothing and bottles of water. The rise in attacks could be because knives are more difficult to get. Gangs are using acid instead. Acid is easy to buy and hide. The police said acid attacks cause "life-changing injuries". The police are working hard to fight this crime.
