Minor celeb Arthur Collins, 25, is wanted by detectives over the incident at Mangle E8 in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Two men, aged 24 and 29, suffered serious facial injuries in the attack and are being treated in a specialist burns unit in Essex – and police have told the Gazette one could go blind.

Ten other clubbers were also treated in hospital for minor burns after 600 people were evacuated from the Love Juice event, and 20 people were injured in total.

Scotland Yard has now released a CCTV image of Collins, of Hertfordshire, and urged anyone who knows where he is to call 999 immediately. Police have also warned people to stay away from him.

He is known for being the boyfriend of Towie star Ferne McCann.

Det Insp Lee McCullough from Hackney CID said: “We now have 20 people suffering from the effects of an acidic substance being sprayed in a confined space in a busy nightclub. All have burn-related injuries.

“The noxious substance used has not yet been confirmed but samples retrieved from the scene have been sent for analysis. If you were there and saw anyone involved inside or leaving the nightclub, please get in touch.”
