Crime scene: Burdett Road was sealed off by police [Image: TFL].

And were the victims Muslims?

Isn’t it time some sort of safety advice was available?

Two people have been seriously injured in an acid attack in an east London street.

A woman, aged in her late 30s, and a man, in his early 20s, were left with serious burns after they were attacked in Mile End in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Scotland Yard said police were called to reports of an acid attack in Burdett Road shortly before 2.15am.

The victims were taken to an east London hospital for their injuries after a corrosive substance was thrown over them.

Their injuries are thought to be serious but non-life threatening.

Burdett Road was sealed off and forensic officers were at the scene investigating for several hours.
