A fourth man has been charged in connection with an attack in Lowestoft in which a corrosive substance was sprayed in a 22-year-old woman's face.

Adele Bellis suffered "life-changing injuries" following an assault on London Road South on 14 August.

Daniel Marshall, 38, of Rose Court, Lowestoft has been charged with conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm with intent.

He is due to appear before magistrates in the town on Thursday.

Mr Marshall was also charged with committing an act or series of acts with intent to pervert the course of justice.

Three other people from Lowestoft have already been charged in connection with inquiry.

Leon Thompson, 38, of Alma Road, has pleaded not guilty to assault and wounding, and Anthony Riley, 25, of Raglan Street, has denied conspiracy to wound and false imprisonment.

Both are due to stand trial at Ipswich Crown Court.

Jason Harrison, 27, from Princes Road, has been charged with throwing a dangerous/noxious substance with intent to do grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm with intent, but he has yet to enter a plea.
