A man has been charged in connection with an aggravated burglary in which a couple were allegedly doused in boiling water and beaten at their home.

The man and woman, aged in their 60s, suffered severe scalding during the raid in Halstead, Kent, on 26 April.

Daniel Wallace, 32, of no fixed abode, is charged with two counts of grievous bodily harm, two counts of false imprisonment and aggravated burglary.

He is due to appear before magistrates in Medway later.

Kent Police said he was arrested at Heathrow Airport on Tuesday.

A 33-year-old man, from Ilford, in east London, and a 29-year-old man, of no fixed address, have also been arrested in connection with the offence.

They have been bailed, pending further inquiries, until 15 September.
