24 September 2017

A group of males reportedly sprayed a poisonous substance in a number of attacks around a shopping centre in east London. Six people were believed to have been injured on Saturday.

The incident was not being treated as terror-related, a police spokesman said. One male was arrested on suspicion of causing great pain. The number of acid attacks has increased in Britain in recent years, linked to robberies and gang-related violence.
