Teenage acid attacker to be sentenced

A teenager who admitted throwing acid at a woman on her doorstep is due to be sentenced later today.

Mum-of-two Tara Quigley was badly scarred when acid was thrown in her face after she answered her front door in Romford, North East London, on April 30.

A 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has pleaded guilty to a charge of throwing corrosive fluid on a person with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
