A mum who was the victim of a chemical attack with her two kids in Clapham may lose sight in her right eye, police have said.

The 31-year-old and her daughters, aged eight and three, were attacked in Lessar Avenue at 7.25pm on January 31.

They were taken to hospital following the incident in which a man threw a corrosive alkaline substance at them.

In the latest update issued today (February 5) by Metropolitan Police Commander Jon Savell, added the mum remains in a “very critical but stable condition” where she suffered significant facial injuries that will “impact her for the rest of her life”.

She may lose the sight in her right eye after the attack - while her daughters have since been discharged from hospital.

Police continue to search for chemical attack suspect Abdul Ezedi who was last seen on Southwark Bridge at 9.50pm on January 31.

Investigators are trawling through hundreds of hours of CCTV and have tracked Ezedi’s movements on the Tube network via his bank card.

A man was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender where he was taken to a south London custody suite.

He has since been bailed.

Counter-terrorism officers are helping sift through CCTV as part of the manhunt following the attack.

Detective Superintendent Rick Sewett, who was also at the briefing, said that police are still trying to establish the relationship between Ezedi and the injured woman.

The discovery of his mobile phone has helped detectives understand their connection, but the motive behind the attack remains unclear.

It was confirmed that Ezedi is not the father of the woman’s children who were also injured during the attack.

A reward of up to £20,000 was previously on offer for information leading to the arrest of Abdul Ezedi.

Anyone with information about Ezedi is asked to call 020 7175 2784 or for an immediate sighting dial 999.
