Footballer's cousin hurt in east London acid attack

By PA Reporters

Ex-Premier League footballer Jamie O'Hara has condemned the "sick" nightclub acid attack in which his cousin was among those injured.

The Celebrity Big Brother star posted a picture of his relative Sadie Wright's scalded face after the corrosive liquid was sprayed during an argument at Mangle in Dalston, east London. Two revellers were seriously hurt when the male suspect threw the liquid at them early on Monday morning.

O'Hara posted a picture on Twitter apparently showing damage to Ms Wright's scalp, adding: "Blisters all over my cousins @SadieWrightxx head from acid attack in hackney, what is wrong with world that innocent people have to get hurt."

Two men, both aged in their 20s, are in a serious but stable condition in hospital. Hundreds of people were at the venue when two groups of clubbers got into a dispute, and the "noxious substance" was flung directly at the two victims.
