by Fox World

At least 12 revelers suffered burns after a man hurled acid across an East London club during a mass brawl at a sold-out Easter event.

The dispute in London Fields forced the evacuation of the venue where about 600 partygoers had been at a Lovejuice nine-hour house music event.

The revelers were partying at Wringer & Mangle, Sidworth Street, when an "unknown corrosive substance" believed to be acid was thrown early this morning.

Roads were closed as emergency services, including a hazardous area response team, rushed to the scene.

London Ambulance Service took 10 patients to hospital, while police said a further two people with similar injuries sought treatment.
