A £5,000 reward has been offered to help police hunt two Old Malden brothers wanted in connection with an acid attack.

Brothers Billy Nathan Midmore, 22, and Geoffrey Christopher Midmore, 26, are still wanted by police 10 days after an acid attack on a 37-year-old woman in Southampton that left her with “life-changing” injuries.

Billy Midmore, of Sheephouse Way, Old Malden, has previously appeared in court over driving, drug and cash seizure offences, and was incarcerated for robbery, attempted robbery and the possession of an imitation firearm in 2010.

Carla Whitlock, the victim of the attack, has now been released from hospital but has extensive burns and may never see out of one eye.

She was on a night out near the Turtle Bay bar in Guildhall Square, Southampton on Friday, September 18, at about 9pm at the time. 

Detective Inspector Will Whale, leading the investigation, thanked members of the public for the help so far and said: "We still think there are people out there that know something about where they are, but haven’t yet come forward and spoken to us. We hope this reward will encourage them to come and tell us what they know.

"We have circulated these men nationally as wanted persons and the borders are closed to them. We have every reason to believe they are still in the country and are still focusing on the south east of England.

"Our team are working relentlessly to find these two men and we would ask them to give themselves up. It’s only a matter of time 'til we find you, so come and speak to us now."

The brothers’ parents live in the heart of Old Malden, on the edge of the A3, between New Malden and Worcester Park.

People in the area, when visited by the Surrey Comet, described Billy as a "bad boy".

Billy has been described as white, 5ft 8in, with blue eyes and a scar on his left arm. He is said to speak with a London accent and is of stocky build.

His brother Geoffrey is white, 5ft 1in with green eyes and a scar on the right side of his face. He is of stocky build and has a tattoo on his hand.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
