‘Chemical substance’ in envelope injures 3 at London’s Borough Market
Three people have been injured in London after a “chemical substance” was delivered to a Borough Market restaurant in an envelope.

The unidentified substance, believed to have been corrosive, was sent to Feng Sushi restaurant on Stoney Street - one of the locations targeted by the London Bridge terrorists in June.

The restaurant has been evacuated as a precaution and cordoned off by police.

The Metropolitan Police said the incident is not being treated as terrorism related “at this early stage.”

London Fire Brigade said firefighters using protective equipment were inside the building after they were called to assist police with a “chemical incident” shortly before 2pm local time.

Police said they were called to reports of an “unidentified substance being delivered in an envelope” to a business in south east London.

Three people are being treated for minor injuries.

Police said no arrests had been made and enquiries continued.
