Teen jailed over bleach attack

A teenager who poured bleach over a woman in a revenge attack after she asked him to be quiet in a cinema has been locked up for 12 months.

Jordan Horsley, 16, attacked Annette Warden as she had a meal with her family in a restaurant in Leeds on July 26.

He was annoyed with the mother-of-two after she fetched a member of staff to tell him and his friends to be quiet during a screening of Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince at the Vue cinema in Kirkstall Road in the city earlier in the day.

Mrs Warden, 46, had to be treated in hospital after the attack, although she was not seriously injured.

The teenager was handed a 12-month detention and training order at Leeds Crown Court after he was found guilty of attempting to cause Mrs Warden grievous bodily harm with intent.
