A spokesperson from Sussex Police said: “While their conditions remain serious, they are currently in a stable state. A woman has been arrested on suspicion of administering a noxious substance / poison to cause injury.
“We are not searching for anyone else in relation to this investigation.
“Our enquiries are ongoing and a heightened police presence is anticipated in the area at this time.
“This is being treated as an isolated incident with no threat to the wider community.”
Councillor for the town’s north ward Dan Manvell told The Independent: “It is obviously something which doesn’t usually happen in Uckfield. Nothing more than low level antisocial behaviour occurs here, so this is worrying.
“It looks like an isolated incident but I’m sure it is upsetting for all those involved, including the family. I hope they get better soon.”
One person said of the incident: “Very sad. I hope the children are as well as can be with something so traumatic.”
