Danniella Westbrook wrote on Twitter: “Acid attack at kings cross station, this country really makes me nervous.”

TV presenter India Willoughby said: "Swear I’m psychic. Was at Kings Cross this morning around 11am going up the escalator and ‘acid attack’ popped in my head.

"Two consecutive days of premonition type things. Got to be so careful these days."

The men were taking to hospital, with police saying they "await an update on their condition".
