Young people sprayed from passing car with ‘aggravating’ mysterious liquid

A group of Ilfracombe Sea Cadets have been sprayed with an unknown harmful liquid in an unprovoked attack.

Around five cadets were sprayed with a 'Super Soaker' gun from a passing car as they walked along Ropery Road at around 6.30pm on Monday, July 13.

Police said the liquid was thought to be an irritant that had caused a reaction among all members of the group and aggravated one person's eczema condition.

Anyone who saw anything is asked to call 101, quoting CR/050399/15.
