Two men on a moped carried out a series of attacks across the capital early on Friday morning.

"The man has been taken to an east London hospital".

Following the incidents in Hackney, officers were made aware of a similar attack reported in Islington, near inner London.

The BBC has more here.

At 11.05pm, the attackers swooped on a man in Shoreditch High Street, hurling acid in his face.

Within 15 minutes, they appeared to have struck again, launching their corrosive load at a man on Cazenove Road and causing "life-changing" facial injuries.

Resham Khan, 21, and Jameel Muhktar, 37, were left with life-changing injuries after the attack on Ms Khan's 21st birthday in Beckton, east London. "A crime scene remains in place". A man stated he had been on his moped in traffic when two males on a moped pulled up alongside him and sprayed liquid in his face.

The pair were waiting at the traffic lights in a vehicle in Newham, east London, when a man allegedly threw acid through both windows of the auto.
