    A man has been found guilty of carrying out an acid attack in a packed London club which left several people injured.

    Arthur Collins, the ex-boyfriend of reality TV star Ferne McCann, threw the corrosive substance at revellers in Mangle E8 in Dalston on 17 April.

    The 25-year-old admitted throwing the liquid but had claimed he believed it was a date rape drug.

    He was convicted at Wood Green Crown Court. Andre Phoenix, who was accused of helping him, was found not guilty.
