A second teenage boy is in custody after two males on a moped carried out five acid attacks across London in less than 90 minutes.

The teenagers – aged 15 and 16 – were arrested on suspicion of robbery and grievous bodily harm following the assaults in the north and east of the capital, which the Metropolitan Police said appeared to be linked.

Two involved victims having their mopeds stolen, while one victim has been left with “life-changing” injuries after being doused on Thursday night, the force added.

Chief Inspector Ben Clark, from Hackney Borough, said all of the victims were riding mopeds, adding that it is not the case that they were all food delivery riders.

Labour MP Stephen Timms, who will lead an adjournment debate on acid attacks in the Commons on Monday, has called for tougher sentences for those found guilty.

Acid attack survivor Katie Piper said victims face a “life sentence” as she also called on tougher sentencing to act as a deterrent
My opinion would be the usual suspects especially in Londonstan and because there has been a large increase in acid attacks over the last few years.
