1981 Acid Attack Victim Speaks to LBC


A victim of an acid attack more than 35 years ago has told LBC the recent spate of attacks in London has brought back "fear" to her life.

Lynn Pereira who went through 140 operations and was left blind by the attack shared her story with Ian.

She described the terrible moment of the attack in Singapore and how she coped in its aftermath.

"It's too easy to buy acid, that's why the government has to do something," she added.

A number of listeners called in after her interview to say how inspirational they found her.
