Two men have been rushed to hospital after suffering burns following a suspected acid attack in East London, according to reports.

Police were called to an incident on Cricketfield Road near Hackney Downs in the early evening after receiving reports of a corrosive substance being thrown on tow men.

A car chase took place just before the attack, with one colliding into a wall, according to witnesses.

Witnesses then saw a corrosive substance being thrown over two men.

Bystanders scrambled to douse the victims with buckets of water to wash the acid of their bodies.

A spokesperson for Met police said:

"Police were called at 7.21pm on Friday, 21 June to reports of a corrosive substance attack at Cricketfield Road, E5."

"Officers and London Ambulance Service attended. At the scene, two males, aged 20s, were found suffering from substance burns."

"Both injured males were taken to east London hospitals where their condition was assessed as non-life threatening."

"Officers from Hackney are investigating. No arrests have been made."

Just hours earlier, two men dressed in burkas chucked acid at a market trade's face in Walthamstow.

The victim ran into a nearby shop yelling 'someone has poured acid on my face,' staff rushed to his aid and doused his face with water, and a customer called an ambulance.

A police spokesperson said:

"The man was taken to an east London hospital for treatment; his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening."

London has become a hotbed for violent crime in recent years as Mayor Sadiq Khan faces mounting pressure to curb the violence in the capital.

Last week, Neon Nettle reported London had suffered its fifth killing in just six days.

Sadiq Khan, who has been criticized for spending more time virtue signaling and attacking President Donald Trump than dealing with the capital's knife crime epidemic, has been criticized for failing to keep the city safe.
