Police are currently investigating four acid attacks in the east of London, one of which reportedly left a victim with “life-changing injuries."
According to the BBC, the attacks occurred within 90 minutes of each other in Hackney, Stoke and Newington on Thursday night.
Police say the incidents are linked, with the attacks all involving a ‘corrosive substance’ thrown in people’s faces.
It’s believed the suspects were travelling on a moped.
The victims have since been taken to hospital and no arrests have been made.
More to come.
