A man has pleaded guilty to three counts of actual bodily harm after a liquid, thought to be ammonia, was sprayed on three men in south London.

Two men were assaulted near the Lightbox club in Vauxhall in May while the third victim was sprayed in the face a short time later, police said.

Jonathan Lynn, of Worcester Park, Kent, also pleaded guilty to one count of possession of an offensive weapon at Inner London Crown Court.

He is due to be sentenced on 15 August.

Lynn, 31, pleaded guilty to three counts of common assault and three counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
