Mr Spencer-Littlewood was enjoying a DJ set when he felt a liquid hit his legs.

He assumed somebody had spilled a drink while dancing in the bustling crowd but the sensation quickly 'escalated to burning'.

The teenager was near the stage at the time so climbed over the fence and alerted a marshall who quickly took him to the medical tent.

Medics called an ambulance while the liquid was washed off with water before he was taken to York Hospital for further treatment at around 2.30am.

His father Craig Littlewood said: 'They cleaned him up at the hospital and reported back it is acid of some description.
