The sisters recalled the moments after the attack saying: 'Everyone was crying, someone said acid had been thrown'

The Mail reports: that Acid attack victims Isobella Fraser, 22, and her sister Prue, 20, from Sydney, suffered serious chemical burns to their arms and back after the acid was sprayed.

Model Ms Fraser said she thought she had been caught up in the middle of a terrorist incident.

She said: 'I thought we were getting gassed. I thought it was a terrorist attack or something. I was freaking out just because of all the things that have been happening.

'I actually couldn't breathe and I was coughing. And then I just felt this thing on my arm and then I realised it was some sort of acid.'

She added: 'My whole dress was wet and I could smell gas, it was making me cough. I thought someone had scratched my back but when I looked at my dress it was melted to my back and there was a massive hole in it.

'Doctors don't know exactly what the substance was but I am sure it is going to leave me scarred - at the moment I have a huge purple mark on my back.

'I'm planning to get out of modelling, but if I was staying in the industry I would be really worried about the scarring.

'It's not what you expect when you go out, I had never heard of this happening but apparently acid attacks are quite common in the UK. It just really freaks you out.

'It was like the recent chemical weapons attack in Syria - we are lucky that this is the closest we are going to get to chemical burns like those people suffered.'

She added that she and her sister admitted themselves to hospital after waiting 'too long' for paramedics to arrive at the club.

She said: 'The ambulance was taking too long and we just wanted to go home to try and sleep as we were in shock.'

The Mail reports that: A source at ITV said last night: 'In light of recent events, Ferne's management have asked if she can take some time off filming This Morning.'

Also a spokeswoman for Ferne said: 'Ferne is aware the police wish to speak to Arthur Collins and the nature of the accusations against him. Obviously these are highly shocking and Ferne has co-operated with the police in their inquiries.

'She was not with Arthur on Sunday night, was not at Mangle and has no direct knowledge of the events.

'She wants to know the truth and urges Arthur to co-operate fully with the police and attend a police station immediately. '

The Mail added: It is understood Ferne has no upcoming appearances scheduled on the show.

Scotland Yard is warning the public not to approach Collins and his famous girlfriend has urged him to come forward and speak to detectives.

It is reported that the 25-year-old's £1million home has also been raided and police say they found cannabis and firearms.

Arthur Collins is still on the run, but his father, also named Arthur Collins was pictured at their family home today in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire.
