A man has been charged after a woman suffered injuries to her face and neck when a "corrosive" substance was "sprayed in her face", police said.

The woman in her 20s was attacked in the London Road South area of Lowestoft on Thursday morning.

Leon Thompson, 38, of Alma Road, Lowestoft, has been charged with throwing a corrosive fluid with intent to disfigure.

He will appear at Ipswich Magistrates' Court later.

Mr Thompson is also charged with an intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

A 25-year-old man arrested in Lowestoft on Friday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm remains in custody for questioning.
