(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Six people were believed to have been injured on Saturday (September 23) after a group of males reportedly sprayed a noxious substance in a number of attacks in an area around a shopping centre in east London, police said. The incident occurred around 8 p.m. (1900GMT) and was not being treated as terror-related, a police spokesman said. The attacks occurred near the Stratford Centre, in Stratford, police said. Earlier they had said the incident took place around the bigger Westfield shopping centre which is nearby. One male was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, the statement said. The number of acid attacks has increased in Britain in recent years, linked to robberies and gang-related violence.
