Isobella, visiting her Chelsea-based sister who had been working in the United Kingdom for seven months, said she had turned her back to get away as the fight, involving people they did not know, broke out. A total of 12 people attended hospital suffering burns.

Pictures have emerged of one of the victims of an attack in which nightclub revellers were sprayed with acid.

"It just sort of went everywhere", she told Channel 7. I thought it was a stabbing because all I heard was "move, move, move - move out of the area".

'I just saw a lot of people complaining, there were a lot of staff around, someone had called the police and a lot of people were crying'.

"I was coughing and felt this thing on my arm and realised that it was some sort of acid". "It was pretty insane". They took themselves to hospital for treatment.

"The victim who had acid splashed all over his face, he was involved in the fight, someone pushed him and he knocked me over", said Isobella.

The police said in a statement that all the injuries were "non-life threatening" and the incident was not believed to be terrorism-related.

"I'm a bit disappointed with the club because they were frisking and checking our bags, but there were a considerable amount of people hurt so it must have been a whole bottle, it shouldn't have got into the club".

But after phoning family back in Australia after returning home to her flat in Chelsea, Prue said her parents urged the pair to head to hospital.

No one has been arrested over the attack so far.

Another of the injured was Sadie Wright, the cousin of former Premier League footballer Jamie O'Hara.

Police believe that an argument between two groups of visitors led to the substance being sprayed by a male suspect.

Another witness described seeing a group pouring bottles of water over what appeared to be an injured friend.

"I could smell something, like a cleaning product, and I thought what is happening, are we in the middle of a terrorist attack".

"Scary scenes in Hackney tonight", she tweeted.
