SQL upgrade script 2.5.2_to_2.5.3 doesn't do a change table correctly

Description

In the SQL script there is the instruction:
/* Alter table in target */
ALTER TABLE information
ADD COLUMN info_cg_hide varchar(255) NULL after language_id;

Result of running upgrade is:

(a bunch of lines)

ALTER TABLE informationADD COLUMN info_cg_hide varchar(255) NULL after languages_id;

(more lines)
COMMIT;
Total 39 queries

However this does not work as intended as the field info_cg_hide is NOT added to the information table.

I believe the problem is defining the default as NULL. Should this not be defined as either 'none' or a particular value?

Environment

None

Steps to reproduce

Running the upgrade script fails every time.
