The victim of a painful acid attack said she feels more sorry than angry about the person who assaulted her.

Tara Quigley, 28, from Romford, was left scarred for life after opening her door on April 30 to an assailant who squirted acid in her face. Her chihuahua was also injured in the assault.


A man came to the door and asked to speak to a’Michelle’ before returning and attacking her with the substance.

Speaking to Aled Jones and Lorraine Kelly on ITV’s Daybreak this morning, Tara revealed mixed feeling about her attacker.


“Some days I hate him but the majority of the time I feel quite sorry for him because I feel he’s a child that’s not capable of making an adult decision.

“(Life has been) quite difficult. We’ve had housing iusses and schooling issues for the children. It’s horrible.”

Tara also revealed she needs two more skin graft operations next year on her neck and under her arm.

“It could have been a lot more (worse),” she said.

A 15-year-old boy was charged with throwing corrosive fluid on a person with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
