Video - Gang of middle-aged men viciously attack teenager and splash corrosive chemicals on his FACE

The 16-year-old was walking along a road in Dagenham, east London, when three men aged between 40 and 50-years-old jumped out of a van and started to assault him.

In the clip caught on CCTV last Friday, the men are seen hitting and kicking the boy before throwing bins at him and then pouring an unknown chemical in his eyes.

The boy suffered chemical burns and was treated at an east London hospital.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “All three men are described as white, of large build and aged between 40 and 50.
