THREE people were treated for minor injuries yesterday after an ‘unidentified substance’ was delivered in an envelope in London’s Borough Market.

They were helped by police, paramedics and firefighters using protective equipment who were called to deal with a ‘chemical incident’ at the Feng Sushi restaurant.

Businessman Paul Dawson said the manager told people ‘something quite bad’ had happened, while security told him it was ‘some kind of corrosive material attack or incident’.

The property in Stoney Street — one of the locations that was targeted by the London Bridge terrorists in June — was evacuated.

London Ambulance Service said ‘no one was taken to hospital’ and police said the incident was not being treated as terror-related ‘at this early stage’.
