    BBC News Two acid attacks on London delivery drivers 'may be linked'


    A delivery driver "left fighting for his life" after an acid attack in east London could lose his sight.
    The 32-year-old had a substance repeatedly thrown in his face by two men who tried to steal his moped in Walthamstow on Thursday at 18:00 GMT.
    In a separate attack in Tottenham about 30 minutes later, another delivery driver, also 32, had a corrosive substance thrown at him.
    A teenage boy has been arrested over the attack in Walthamstow.
    He is being held on suspicion of committing grievous bodily harm and is in custody at an east London police station, the Met said.
    BBC home affairs correspondent Danny Shaw said police "strongly suspect" both attacks are linked.
    He added that the pizza delivery driver attacked on Walpole Street has injuries to his throat, face, oesophagus and eyes and is in an induced coma.
    Detectives said the man was likely to lose sight in both eyes.
    "This attack has left a man fighting for his life and with terrible eye injuries," Det Ch Insp Gordon Henderson said.
    "This was an innocent man going about his work as a delivery driver, who may never see again."
    In the second attack, two men approached the victim on Yarmouth Crescent, Tottenham, in a bid to steal his moped.
    He was taken to hospital but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

    These sort of fuckers chucking acid, bleach, jizz or any other weird crap should be dipped in whatever it is they had.

    So far, it’s all cocks in east London as far as I have heard...

    Is it a conception these attackers are mostly immigrants?

    That or feral kids.

    There was an Indian couple done not long ago, but that likely has more to it.

    Recently seems like they are doing it to nick mopeds. Then probably use them to rob people’s phones or bags etc.

    We had one in Canterbury within the last year or so. The victim were a couple of locals but the person who threw the acid was from south London. Row over drugs apparently. See Canterbury is about an hour without traffic from London, 40,000 students in Canterbury during term time.....Leads to arguments over who is the biggest/best/baddest supplier of gear for all these youngsters who remember are away from home so don't know the local networks ect. But yeah we've had one that I know of.

    In my youth it was a good old fashioned punch up and usually nothing more. It seems the next generation feel the need to keep waving their dicks around and playing the mine is bigger than yours game.

    Its all stupid but acid is a nasty thing indeed to be chucking about.
