What needs to be done to prevent acid attacks?

An online petition has been created calling on the Government to introduce stricter laws to make it harder for people to buy acid or other corrosive substances in the UK. This comes after 21 year old Resham Khan from Manchester and her cousin Jameel Mukhtar were attacked last week in London. Rachel Kearton the National Police Chief's Council's Lead on Corrosive Substances discusses what needs to be done to reduce the number of acid attacks.
