Two males, aged 29 and 24, have been moved to a specialist burns hospital in Essex, and are said to be in a serious but stable condition after being "sprayed" in the face after an argument allegedly broke out early Monday morning.
A London Fire Brigade spokeswoman said:
It was identified by a PH paper test as a strong acidic substance.
McCann and Collins have been together for just under a year, and planned to move in together and get married. About the investigation, a spokesperson said on behalf of McCann,
Ferne is aware that the police wish to speak to Arthur Collins and the nature of the accusations against him.
Obviously these are highly shocking and Ferne has co-operated with the police in their inquiries.
She was not with Arthur on Sunday night; was not at Mangle; and has no direct knowledge of the events that unfolded.
As much as anybody she wants to know the truth and urges Arthur to co-operate fully with the police and attend a police station immediately.
