Many readers contacted us last night (Friday 25th August) after hearing anecdotally of an alleged ‘acid attack’ close to the Black Horse in Northfield. West Midlands Police have confirmed today that the incident was NOT an acid attack.
Police received reports of an acid attack just after 9.30pm but found that the liquid was not, in fact, acid.
A 29 year old man was found to have no injuries but was taken to hospital as a precaution.
A police spokeswoman confirmed that the man is now helping them with enquiries and that officers are not seeking anyone else in relation to the incident.
