A second teenager has been charged in connection with an acid attack that left a father of two with extensive burns.

Wayne Ingold, 56, was attacked outside his flat in Witham, Essex, on 8 August last year.

Aarron Isaac, 19, has been charged with throwing a corrosive liquid with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

Mr Isaac, of Elverson Road, Lewisham, has also been charged with wounding with intent, Essex Police said.

He was remanded in custody following a hearing at Colchester Magistrates' Court and is due to appear at Chelmsford Crown Court next month.

A 15-year-old boy who faces the same charge will stand trial at Chelmsford Crown Court in April.
