TWO men have been taken to hospital with facial injuries reportedly caused by an acid attack.

Police were called today (Tuesday) at about 1.30pm to Argyle Square in King’s Cross to reports of an “altercation” between two groups of males.

When officers had arrived, they had left.

However, two men were found nearby with injuries reported to have been caused by a “corrosive substance”, the Met Police said.

The men have been taken to a nearby hospital and the Met is awaiting an update on their condition.

Photos sent to the New Journal show emergency services in Crestfield Street near King’s Cross station. London Fire Brigade were also in attendance.

No arrests have been made.
