Earlier this month six men were sprayed in the face with the liquid, which left one man with serious injuries.

Another victim was saved by his moped helmet after acid was thrown at him.

Experts believe gang members are swapping guns and knives for acid as it is harder for police to find the assailants.

Daily Star Online previously revealed guides to brewing the burning liquid are easily found on the internet.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd has vowed to push through tougher sentencing on acid attacks and for the substance to be reclassified as a dangerous weapon.
