Five Acid Attacks Took Place In London In Just 90 Minutes

Police are investigating a string of five acid attacks that took place in east London in just 90 minutes last night.

A pair of male suspects on a moped carried out the attacks in Hackney, Stoke Newington and Islington on Thursday night.

All of the victims were taken to hospital, with one of them suffering ‘life-changing injuries’.

The attackers pulled up to five people throwing corrosive liquid over them in five separate but linked attacks between 10.25pm and 11.37pm.

In two of the attacks the victims also had their mopeds stolen.

Police have said one 16-year-old male has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and robbery and is currently being held at an east London police station.
