Dear Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner,

I wanted to know if you could provide me with data regarding acid attacks in the Northumbria area in the last 10 - 15 years.

The information I am looking for is the following:
(1) the number of attacks that have occurred?
(2) the age of the attackers and the victims?
(3) the injuries the victims ended up with?
(4) age of individuals found to be carrying acid or other corrosive substances?

Yours faithfully,

Z Shah
