In a separate incident last night an 18-year-old man was attacked with a corrosive liquid in West Hampstead shortly before 11pm. 

The man was sprayed in the face with an alkaline-type liquid in Iverson Road near the West Hampstead rail station. Two suspects, described as white and wearing hoodies, fled towards Kilburn High Road.

The teenage victim was rushed to a central London hospital. His condition is not life threatening but he is due to be transferred to a specialist eye hospital for further treatment.

There have been no arrests.
