Warning: This report contains images of the immediate aftermath of the acid attack.
The Metropolitan Police has paid tribute to the bravery of acid attack victim Naomi Oni after her former friend was found guilty of the attack.
DCI Dave Whellams said Mary Konye, 21, carried out a "horrible offence which required a degree of planning and calculation" after what he described as a "trivial, insignificant argument".
Speaking outside London's Snaresbrook Crown Court, he said:
"The result today will give Naomi Oni some comfort but she's never going to be away from the fact that she's scarred. Everytime she looks in the mirror she's going to be reminded of the fact but it will enable her to start to get some closure."
Judge David Radford warned Mary Konye that she will face jail when he sentences her for carrying out an acid attack on Naomi Oni on March 7 after receiving reports.
He said: "I should make clear that, in my judgment, this is a case that will, in all likelihood, need a substantial custodial sentence. It is inevitable, but it won't be dealt with until I have received those reports."
He went on to thank jurors for their efforts, saying they had looked at the evidence "with great thoroughness, taking your time to reach your verdict".
Ms Oni burst into tears as she left the courtroom and was hugged by family and friends.

During her trial, the jury at London's Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that, following the attack, Konye pretended to give Ms Oni a shoulder to cry on.

The pair, who had been friends since secondary school, fell out in April 2011 when Ms Oni allegedly accused Konye of texting her boyfriend and called her an "ugly monster".
