Wayne Ingold has suffered 'life-changing' injuries to his face and hands

First published in News by , Reporter

A disabled man who suffered serious chemical burns to his face and hands is back in hospital for surgery on his injuries.

Wayne Ingold, who was registered disabled after suffering a brain heamorrhage, had gone to collect his post from the communal entrance to a block of flats in Bramble Road, Witham, last Friday when he encountered two men banging on the door.

Following a brief exchange the two men threw the liquid, which was in a glass bottle, over the 56-year-old and ran off.

The liquid used has been described as “caustic” meaning it corodes skin.

Mr Ingold, who used to run a photography business and lived in Clacton with his ex-wife Lorraine before moving to Witham, had since gone home but has now returned to Chelmsford's Broomfield Hospital for a week to have a series of painful skin grafts on the injuries to his hands and face.
