Police appeal for man in 'ammonia attack' in Vauxhall

Two attacks in which three men were sprayed with a liquid, thought to be ammonia, near a nightclub in south London are being treated by police as homophobic crimes.

Police said two men were assaulted near The Lightbox club in Vauxhall in the early hours of Sunday and a short time later a third victim was also sprayed in the face.

Police want to speak to a man, who was caught on CCTV, as part of their investigation.

BBC London's home affairs correspondent Guy Smith spoke to Joseph McDonagh, from Lightbox nightclub, Det Ch Insp William White and Sam Dick from Stonewall charity.
