A 38-year-old man will appear in court this morning in connection with an incident in Lowestoft where a woman was sprayed in the face with a corrosive substance.

Police were called at 8.20am on Thursday to London Road South in the town, when it was reported a woman had suffered serious facial injuries.

He is due to appear at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court in Ipswich this morning.
