Katie Piper, a former TV presenter and model who was badly disfigured in a horrific acid attack has started a new charity for burns victims.

Piper, 26, had acid thrown in her face in March 2008 by a thug, Stefan Sylvestre, hired by a jealous ex-boyfriend, Daniel Lynch. Both men are now serving life sentences.

The Katie Piper Foundation will lobby for more of the groundbreaking plastic surgery that surgeons used to save Piper’s face to be made more widely available, and for people to accept that disfigured people are still people.
