London Acid Attack Leaves Three Hospitalized

Three people were hospitalized in London Tuesday following a suspected acid attack in the west end of the city.

Police say the attack, which involved a “noxious substance,” occurred in Westbourne Grover shortly after 2 p.m.

“We were called at 2:10 p.m. today to reports of a noxious substance attack on Westbourne Grove,” a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

The London Fire Brigade, according to U.K. newspaper Daily Express, dispatched 10 firefighters to make sure the area was decontaminated.

A spokeswoman for the London Ambulance Service added that a “hazardous area response team” was also sent to the scene.

“We also dispatched our hazardous area response team,” the spokeswoman said. “We treated three people at the scene and took them to hospital.”

At current, no arrests have been made linked to the attack.

Acid Survivors Trust International, a non-profit organization working to end such attacks worldwide, says the U.K. has one of the highest rates of acid attacks per capita in the world.

London in 2017 saw 465 “corrosive liquid” attacks as compared to 397 the year prior, notes Scotland Yard.

Experts warn the number could even be higher as some victims may refrain from reporting the incidents out of fear.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, called on the government last year to implement a “zero tolerance” policy towards the attacks.

Critics argue that Khan has failed to prioritize the city’s rising violent crime rate.

The U.K. government has been working with retailers in an attempt to find whether certain restrictions can be placed on bleach and other corrosive substances.

Sadiq Khan ‘Bikini’ Balloon Flies at London Pro-Trump Event

A giant balloon depicting London Mayor Sadiq Khan in a yellow bikini has been launched over Parliament Square on Saturday by pro-Trump demonstrators.

Organizers had raised more than $75,000 to create the blimp in a protest against Khan’s policies, which have resulted in record crime waves including stabbings and acid attacks.

President Trump has repeatedly criticized London’s first Muslim mayor over his handling of security and rampant crime.

The balloon is also a jab at Khan’s approval of a giant balloon depicting President Trump as a baby during Trump’s UK visit in July.

Ecuador orders withdrawal of extra Assange security from embassy in London

“The President of the Republic, Lenin Moreno, has ordered that any additional security at the Ecuadorian embassy in London be withdrawn immediately,” the government said in a statement. “

From now on, it will maintain normal security similar to that of other Ecuadorian embassies,” the statement said.

Ecuador suspended Assange’s communication systems in March after his pointed political comments on Twitter.

Moreno has described Assange’s situation as “a stone in his shoe.”

‘Malfunctioning’ robot terrifies drinkers in a London pub

To field test Fred, the London pub was rigged with hidden cameras and Fred was planted in the bar to see if he could beguile the public.

Relaxed in the bar, the android struck up conversations with members of the public.

Reactions ranged from startled confusion to fear and unease as they digested a series of weighty questions, including ‘what are your thoughts on the impending humanoid robot invasion?’

They were then witness to a scheduled ‘malfunction’, in which Fred began to glitch before dramatically shattering the pint glass.

Russian Nikolai Glushkov found dead in London ‘with strangulation marks’ is linked to killer of Alexander Litvinenko

It has now emerged Andrey Lugovoy, widely accused of murdering dissident Litvinenko with polonium, was jailed for attempting to spring Glushkov from prison in 2001.

At the time, Glushkov was behind bars for defrauding Russian airline company Aeroflot.

Lugovoy was sent down for 14 months but had his jail term cut short.

There were claims that he may have owed the FSB for getting him out and poisoning Litvinenko’s tea with a radioactive cocktail could have been part of his payback.

Ecuador Issues Assange a Passport as Plan Develops to Remove Him from London Safely

In an official statement, the Ecuadorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility announced that the government of Ecuador “will continue to seek solutions, in strict adherence to the norms and procedures of international law, in coordination with the United Kingdom, a country with which the best relations of friendship and cooperation are maintained.”

Today, Assange broke ten days of silence by tweeting a photograph of himself wearing a yellow jersey from the Ecuadorian Marathon FEF football team, strongly suggesting his enthusiasm that the Ecuadorian government has chosen to play a positive role in finding a way for Assange to leave his current asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Assange’s stay in London embassy untenable, says Ecuador

Ecuador’s foreign minister has said Julian Assange’s five-and-a-half-year stay in her country’s London embassy is “untenable” and should be ended through international mediation.

The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up in Knightsbridge since the summer of 2012, when he faced the prospect of extradition to Sweden over claims that he sexually assaulted two women. He denies the accusations.

Swedish prosecutors last year unexpectedly dropped their investigation into the allegations, which included a claim of rape. But Assange still faces arrest for breaching bail conditions if he steps outside the embassy and WikiLeaks has voiced fears that the US will seek his extradition and that there is a sealed indictment ordering his arrest.

London police investigate Hollywood’s Harvey Weinstein


Scotland Yard is investigating Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein over alleged sexual abuse in the UK, it emerged this afternoon.

The Metropolitan Police is reviewing an allegation against the movie mogul dating back to the 1980s after Merseyside Police received a tip-off and referred it to them.

A separate English actress, Sophie Dix, has also revealed an alleged sexual assault by Weinstein left her burgeoning Hollywood career in tatters.

It comes amid an avalanche of claims of sexual impropriety made against the 65-year-old by some of the movie industry’s most famous actresses in the last few days. 

A Met Police spokesman said this afternoon: ‘We can confirm the Metropolitan Police Service was passed an allegation of sexual assault by Merseyside Police on Wednesday, 11 October. 

‘The allegation will be assessed by officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command.’ 

There is no suggestion the allegation relates to child abuse.

A spokesman for police in Liverpool said: ‘Merseyside Police can confirm a report was received at 8.40am on Wednesday of an alleged sexual assault in the London area in the 1980s. The report has been referred to the Metropolitan Police.’

Parsons Green Tube explosion sparks manhunt for terrorist

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan announced “a manhunt is underway” as bomb squads and counter-terror cops swarmed on the scene.

Police have revealed that the homemade bomb, likened to pressure cooker devices used in 2013’s Boston Marathon attack, did not fully detonate.

The 2013 bombs, which killed three and injured hundreds, were packed with nails and ball-bearings to cause maximum damage and it is not yet clear if today’s device had similar projectiles.

Theresa May is being kept informed of developments after the fifth major terror attack on British soil in six months.
