The man suffered "potentially life-changing injuries", although his condition is not thought to be life-threatening. The woman and boy suffered minor injuries.

Officers have yet to identify the substance used.

No arrests have been made.

A Met spokesperson added that police were still working to "establish the full circumstances" of the attack, which happened at the junction of Copenhagen Street and Caledonian Road.
