TOWIE star's ex-boyfriend threw acid over London clubbers
Arthur Collins, the father of Ferne McCann's newborn daughter, has been convicted.
Arthur Collins, the ex-boyfriend of reality TV star Ferne McCann, has been found guilty of an acid attack in a London nightclub.
The father of The Only Way Is Essex star's newborn daughter, hurled the substance over a crowd at the Mangle E8 in Dalston, east London, on 17 April.
The 25-year-old from Hertfordshire, was convicted of five counts of grievous bodily harm with intent, and nine counts of actual bodily harm against 14 people.
Collins was convicted at Wood Green Crown Court.
His co-defendant, Andre Phoenix, 21, from Tottenham, north London, was acquitted of four counts of grievous bodily harm and two of actual bodily harm.
More than a dozen people were injured when acid was thrown over the dance-floor, which was packed with revellers.
Collins said he had been out celebrating the news of Ms McCann's pregnancy, which they had announced to her family the previous day.
CCTV showed him and Mr Phoenix arriving at the club at about 9pm before getting into a confrontation with a group of men around four hours later.
At around 1am people were seen clutching their faces and running off the dancefloor after Collins doused them with a liquid.
Clubbers dropped to their knees, shielded their faces with clothing, and rubbed ice on blistered skin after the attack.
The substance was later found to have a rating of pH1 - indicating a strong acid.
Collins will be sentenced on 19 December.
