A man has been seriously injured after dousing himself with acid in court.
The man was in the dock at Inner London Crown Court on Monday when he poured liquid over himself. The 54-year-old had reportedly just been sentenced for fraud offences when the incident happened. An officer was also slightly injured.
He was reported to have been carrying a metal water bottle but CCTV footage is said to have shown him sipping from it as he went through security.
