Two people have been arrested following an acid attack on shop worker Naomi Oni, Scotland Yard said today.
Ms Oni suffered burns and lost her hair and eyelashes after the chemical was thrown at her in Dagenham on December 30.
Police said that they had arrested and bailed a 21-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.
It was reported that detectives were investigating whether Ms Oni had caused the injuries herself but Scotland Yard later said she is not the woman who was arrested.
