Two teenagers who sprayed acid over a man in Essex in a case of mistaken identity have been condemned showing "no remorse".
Wayne Ingold, the former chauffeur of Simon Cowell, was left with life-changing injuries following the attack in Witham in August 2014. He was sprayed in the face with acid as he collected his post from his block of flats.
Aaron Isaac, 19, and Jake McCabe, 16, were today sentenced at Chelmsford Crown Court for throwing a corrosive liquid with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Isaac was sentenced to 10 years in a young offenders institute and McCabe to six years.
During the trial, Mr Ingold told the court he initially thought he had been hit with orange juice. He ran to a mirror and noticed his face had turned yellow and looked like melted wax. He suffered horrific burns to his face and shoulders.
Judge David Turner said during sentencing that the attackers performed a grave and despicable crime, which their victim "will never and can never forget".
It is the second case in three weeks where people in the East of England have been sentenced for using acid as a weapon.
Anthony Riley, the former partner of Adele Bellis, was last month sentenced to life in prison at Ipswich Crown Court for his part in arranging the acid attack which left her with life-changing permanent injuries
