Met arrests a second man over nightclub acid attack

By PA Reporters

A second man has been arrested following an "awful" nightclub acid attack that left two people partially blinded.

The 24-year-old was arrested in north London on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, the Metropolitan Police said.

It comes after a 21-year-old was arrested earlier on Friday on the same charges, also in north London.

Police are still trying to trace the boyfriend of reality television star Ferne McCann after a corrosive liquid was sprayed during an argument at Mangle in Dalston, east London.

A 22-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man were both blinded in one eye in the attack in the early hours of Monday.

Police are appealing for the public's help in locating Arthur Collins, McCann's 25-year-old boyfriend.

She also issued a public plea for him to turn himself in.
