Boy bailed after six injured in Stratford 'acid attack'

A teenage boy arrested after a noxious substance attack in which six people were injured has been released on bail.

Police were called to the Stratford Centre in east London on Saturday night to reports of a fight between during which the substance was sprayed - writes

They then ran from the scene, opposite the Westfield shopping centre, some into Stratford station.

Officers arrested a 15-year-old boy in Stratford on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and he was taken to an east London police station for questioning.

I would like to be very clear concerning this incident. What initially may have been perceived as a number of random attacks has, on closer inspection, been found to be one incident involving two groups of males. I recognise the lasting impact on victims of corrosive substance attacks.

Our response to such attacks is continually improving through training and joint working with partners and we are working with the Home Office to explore possible restrictions around the sale of corrosive substances in conjunction with retailers and manufacturers.
