East London nightclub attack leaves a dozen injured with chemical burns


Two remain in critical condition.

Six hundred partygoers were evacuated from Mangle E8 early this morning (April 17) after a man sprayed acid on the crowd. Twelve have been reported injured.

According to the BBC, “officers believe a man threw acid at two men after a dispute between two groups inside the venue,” but the Metropolitan police says there is no evidence it was related to gang activity. The attack leaves two in critical, but stable, condition at the hospital. Ten others were treated for minor injuries.

“It happened so fast – they rushed people out. I thought it was a stabbing because all I heard was ‘move, move, move – move out of the area’,” a woman who lives in a housing block overlooking the club told the BBC. “The security were telling the crowd to go down that way – people on this side were waiting to go home but they couldn’t go home because the road was closed. People were confused.”

No arrests have been made at this time.

    Suspect in acid attack at East London nightclub Mangle E8 currently at large


    More details of last weekend’s harrowing incident have been uncovered.

    Authorities are currently searching for a man named Arthur Collins, who is believed to be the perpetrator of an acid attack committed early morning this past Monday at East London club Mangle E8, the Evening Standard reports. Twenty people were injured in the attack and two victims have since been moved to specialist burn hospital in Essex, but are both in stable condition.

    A residence in Hertfordshire believed to be where Collins lives was raided by the Metropolitan Police on Monday night after a warrant for his arrest was issued in connection with the attack.

    Collins, a 25-year-old businessman, was recently engaged to former The Only Way is Essex star Ferrne McCann. “Ferne is aware that the police wish to speak to Arthur Collins and the nature of the accusations against him,” a spokesperson for the reality star said. The two were recently on the cover of OK Magazine detailing their marriage plans.

    Arthur Collins arrested over London club acid attack


    Collins is being held on suspicion of attempted murder.

    Police have arrested a 25-year-old man in connection with the east London club acid attack that left two people partially blinded and others disfigured.

    Arthur Collins was arrested at an address in Rushden, Northamptonshire on Saturday on suspicion of attempted murder. Another man, Andre Phoenix, 21, has also been charged with seven counts of grievous bodily harm.

    Twenty clubbers suffered burns after being doused with a noxious substance in Hackney club Mangle E8 on Easter Monday, including a 22-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man who were both blinded in one eye.

    Police have yet to identify the substance used in the attack.

    Collins was sought by police after the incident and was urged to turn himself in by girlfriend Ferne McCann, best known for her appearances on The Only Way Is Essex and I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!

    Says he's engaged to someone out of the only way is Essex (reality tv show over here) so liable to be a pretty boy who's been coddled by his families money, hopefully he tops himself.

    Arthur Collins guilty over Dalston nightclub acid attack

    A man has been found guilty of carrying out an acid attack in a packed London club which left 22 people injured.

    Arthur Collins, the ex-boyfriend of reality TV star Ferne McCann, threw the corrosive substance at revellers in Mangle E8 in Dalston on 17 April.

    The 25-year-old admitted throwing the liquid but had claimed he believed it was a date rape drug.

    He was convicted at Wood Green Crown Court. Andre Phoenix, who was accused of helping him, was found not guilty.

    Twenty-two people were injured, 16 of those suffering serious burns, when Collins sprayed acid over revellers inside the busy east London venue at about 01:00 BST.

    One man suffered third-degree chemical burns to the left side of the face and required a skin graft. Others had eye injuries.


    Phoebe Georgiou, who had been celebrating her 23rd birthday in the club that night, said she still suffers from night terrors and anxiety about being in crowded places having been hit by the substance.

    When she was taken to hospital she said she "saw my reflection in the shower hold, which was so shocking because my whole chest looked like it had been ripped apart and I could see the inside of my chest and my arm".

    "I have a life sentence to deal with, with scars and mental injuries," she said.

    A solicitor for two of the other victims said Collins' "despicable crime" had "changed the lives of so many people in the club that night".


    CCTV shown in court showed clubbers clutching their faces and running off the dancefloor as they were hit with the liquid.

    Victims told the jury their skin began "blistering straight away" and described a burning smell. The liquid was later found to have a rating of pH1, equal to strong acids such as those used in battery acid.

    Collins told the court during the trial he had been at the club celebrating the news of Ms McCann's pregnancy, which the couple had revealed to her family the previous day.

    He was seen on CCTV getting into a confrontation with a group of men in the club before he sprayed liquid from a bottle over the crowd.


    Following the trial the Met said Collins had grabbed the bottle "from the back pocket of an unidentified man".

    Collins, of Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, had claimed in court he had taken the bottle from that group and thought it was a date rape drug.

    However, the jury found him guilty of five counts of GBH with intent, and nine counts of ABH against 14 people.

    Collins will be sentenced on 19 December.


    He was not arrested for several days after the attack and was eventually detained when officers Tasered him after he tried to flee by jumping from an upstairs window of a house in Northamptonshire.

    Scotland Yard said he answered no comment to all questions put to him after he was detained.

    Det Ch Supt Simon Laurence said Collins had intended to "inflict serious harm" on a large number of people in a "barbaric and cowardly act".


    The court heard Collins had sent a text to his sister a week before the attack, reading: "Tell mum to mind that little hand wash in my car acid".

    Collins claimed he was referring to hair-thickening shampoo which contained amino acid, which he needed for his hair after having two hair transplants.

    He had said he kept the shampoo in his car so his girlfriend did not find out about his hair loss.

    Lily Saw, London CPS reviewing lawyer, said the prosecution had "proved this acid attack was no accident".

    "Acid can be as much of a weapon as a knife with equally damaging consequences," she said.
