Two arrests have been made following a suspected acid attack outside a fish and chip shop in Whitstable.

A 25-year-old woman from the Whitstable area was taken into custody on suspicion of assault.

The second arrest was of a 51-year old man, also from the town, who was questioned on suspicion of making threats to kill and causing criminal damage.

The assault took place yesterday morning outside Ian's Plaice, formerly known as Ernie's Plaice, at Thanet Way in Whitstable.

A man, believed to be a chef at the fish and chip shop, was taken to hospital after reports he had a substance thrown at him.

It is believed that the victim and suspects know each other.

Both suspects have been released on bail until Friday, August 25.
