A 19-year-old man has been charged over a noxious substance attack involving a man and a woman in east London on 4 July.

Mustafa Ahmed faces one count of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm, and one count of attempted wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

He will appear before Thames Magistrates' Court later.
