A man is due to be sentenced at Truro Crown Court today for carrying out an acid attack on a man in a case of mistaken identity.

Property developer Andreas Christopheros, suffered serious burns and lost the sight in one eye when David Phillips threw sulphuric acid in his face in Truro last year.

Phillips, who's 49, attacked Mr. Christopheros on his own doorstep after travelling from his own home in East Sussex.
