Two men remain in a serious but stable condition at a specialist burns unit after a “noxious substance” was sprayed inside a busy London nightclub in the early hours of Monday morning.
Twenty clubbers were injured in the attack at the Mangle E8 venue, according to Detective Inspector Lee McCullough from Hackney CID, who leads the investigation. "All have burn related injuries," McCullough said. Twelve of those required hospitalization with two men in their 20s now recovering in a burns hospital in Essex.
Police said an argument kicked off between two groups of people during the LoveJuice club night, with a male suspect spraying an acidic substance on two intended victims.
