An 18-year-old woman who admitted throwing bleach into the face of a teenage girl has been warned she faces a possible custodial sentence.

Rebecca Morris, 18, of Hilary Grove, Hull, attacked Victoria Smith, 17, at the junction of Albert Avenue and Cobden Street, in Hull, on 20 August.

At Hull Crown Court Morris was told to prepare herself "for the very real possibility of a custodial sentence"

She will be sentenced on 23 February, having pleaded guilty on 19 December.

Morris, who admitted unlawfully and maliciously casting or throwing a corrosive fluid with intent to cause harm, had been due to be sentenced earlier but the hearing was adjourned to allow for medical evidence to be checked.

Judge David Tremberg told Morris: "I can give you no indication of your sentence yet. However, you should prepare yourself for the very real possibility of a custodial sentence."

Morris was bailed ahead of her next appearance.
