London nightclub acid attack leaves at least 12 injured
Hundreds of clubgoers were evacuated from East London nightclub Mangle E8 on Sunday night (5/16) after a man sprayed what police believe to be corrosive acid at two other men in the club during a dispute. At least 12 were injured. From the BBC:
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: "The only information that we have is that it was an unknown corrosive substance thrown within the nightclub.
"It was identified by a pH paper test as a strong acidic substance."
It is understood about 600 people were at an event in the club.
Officers said 10 people were taken to hospital by ambulance, while a further two sought treatment at A&E.
They said no arrests had been made and officers were continuing to investigate.
The police added there was no evidence to suggest the attack was gang related.
The story is developing.
