Police have charged Arthur Collins, 24, over an acid attack which left two people blinded.

The incident occurred at east London club Mangle in the early hours of Easter Monday, leaving 20 people injured.

Collins, from Hertfordshire, had been sought by police after a CCTV image of him inside the venue had been shared. He was arrested at a property in Northamptonshire on Saturday and has been charged with 14 counts of wounding with intent and one of throwing corrosive fluid on a person.

A second man, Andre Phoenix, has been charged with seven counts of grievous bodily harm. Both are due at Thames Magistrates Court in London today (April 24).
