Two men brought to hospital in east London after suspected acid attack

Two men brought to hospital in east London after suspected acid attack

Another person was injured in connection with the incident. The shopkeeper poured water over the two while they waited for an ambulance to arrive. They had acid on their face and they were burning.

Wishing anonymity, a shopkeeper said: "They were two Bengali boys who came into the shop". One of them was pouring it down his pants.

"I was really scared".

She added: "I didn't see anyone because the tarps were up".

"I think the boys had been attacked elsewhere and then got in their auto and drove here to get water".

"Their face and their legs were all burnt".

He said: "At the moment they've gone off to the Royal London Hospital so we're not too sure about their injuries".

He said a crime scene remained in place in the area.

Footage posted online by Chris Lennon showed a topless man pouring water on to his face as he is surrounded by five paramedics as a policeman watches on.

Police have been called to reports of an acid attack in East London.

The two victims are said to have run into a shop in the Bethnal Green area at around 7pm begging for water and screaming: "We've got acid on us!"

"London Ambulance Service attended the scene".

The Metropolitan police has given response vehicles 1,000 acid attack kits this week after a rise in the number of crimes involving corrosive liquids.

No arrests have been made and inquires continue.

Acid was used in five attacks across London earlier this month. He denies the charges. On Easter Monday, acid was sprayed at a crowded east London night club, leaving two people partially blinded and others disfigured.

The latest incident comes after a spate of acid attacks in the United Kingdom that have shocked the British public.

A police officer at the scene also told MailOnline that "the colour of their faces had changed" and the arm of a jacket one man was wearing had melted away. It includes protective gear, and five-liter bottles of water to allow officers to administer immediate treatment if required.
