Of course, Mr Tomlin remains innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

This Writer is looking forward to hearing evidence regarding this attack, and the mentality of people who would do such a thing.

The chief suspect in an alleged acid attack on two cousins in east London has handed himself in to police.

John Tomlin, 24, has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent after Jameel Mukhtar and Resham Khan were attacked while waiting at traffic lights in Beckton on 21 June.

Tomlin entered an east London police station on Sunday and remains in custody, Scotland Yard confirmed.

Both victims suffered life-changing injuries to the face and body and Mukhtar was initially placed in an induced coma.

The arrest comes after the Metropolitan police released fresh CCTV images of Tomlin on Friday as part of an appeal into his whereabouts. Police had initially ruled out a religious or racial motive for the crime, but reclassified the attack as a hate crime when new evidence came to light at the end of June.
