Tara Quigley was in court and wept as details of the attack were read out. In an victim impact statement she said:
The attack has left me feeling as though my life has been blown apart.
I have been left both physically and emotional scarred, and am in constant pain and discomfort owing to burns on my face, chest and arms.
I have lost confidence in my physical appearance and feel that people will stare at me when they see the scars.
I will have to live with this attack and the scars it has left me with for the rest of my life and nothing I can say or do will change that.
I truly hope that the man responsible knows just what he has done and the grief and anguish he has caused to me and my entire family.
