Police in London have 1,000 special kits to deal with acid attacks. The number of attacks is increasing. Two weeks ago, there were five different attacks on one night. The criminals wanted to steal the people's motorbikes. The number of crimes involving acid has doubled in London in three years. A plastic surgeon said the number of patients he treats for acid attacks has reached "epidemic" levels. He said there had been an "explosion" of attacks.

The acid attack kits have protective clothing and five-litre bottles of water. The rise in attacks could be because knives and guns are more difficult to get. Gangs are using acid instead because it is easy to buy and hide. A police spokesman spoke about the acid attacks. He said: "These are life-changing injuries." He added that the police are working hard to fight this crime. They are looking for a safer way to find acid on the streets.
