A man was injured after being sprayed in the face with an unknown substance by two men on mopeds.

The victim, who is believed to be in his 20s, was targeted as he sat in his car in broad daylight near Kingston’s busy train station in south-west London.

The attackers threw the liquid at him before fleeing the scene.

Emergency services rushed to the scene in Fife Road at about 12.30pm on Tuesday.

Officers attended along with the London Ambulance Service and the London Fire Brigade.

The victim was taken by paramedics to a south London hospital as a precaution. He was not seriously injured, police said.

Scotland Yard said nothing was stolen and specialist officers have examined the liquid which was found to be non-corrosive. No arrests have been made.

The incident comes amid a shocking spate of acid attacks in London in recent weeks with the number of crimes soaring.

The Standard carried out an investigation last month which showed just how east it is to buy substances on London’s streets.
