UK: Acid Attacks Now at ‘Epidemic Levels’, Says Burns Surgeon

on

Acts of extreme terrorism continue to soar worldwide.

Since 2015 the number of acid burn attacks has risen exponentially, particularly in London which now holds the record for highest percentage of burn victims from acid attacks. One London burn surgeon doctor has revealed what he believes to be a growing epidemic.

Via Breitbart:

A burns surgeon who treats many acid attack victims coming out of East London has suggested that the proliferation of such crimes is now at epidemic levels.

Dr Martin Niall, a burn surgeon at Mid-Essex Hospital, told National Public Radio (NPR) in the U.S. that acid attacks in Britain “are now at levels that one of my colleagues described as epidemic”.

He added: “Everyone, ourselves included, has been shocked by this emerging threat to public health.”

In terms of attacks per head of population, London is now the acid attack capital of the world, with a 74 per cent rise in assaults — from 261 to 454 — between 2015 and 2016.


Hundreds of attacks have already been logged for the first few months of 2017. Twelve people suffered burns and in some cases lost their vision after an attack in a Hackney nightclub at Easter, and two moped-mounted teens attacked five people around London in under 90 minutes in a July crime spree.

Allowing immigrants into a country has proven to result in crime and devastation. Acid attacks are becoming the norm in London and without severe action, America will be the next target.
