A teenager has been jailed in Britain for pouring bleach over a woman who asked him to be quiet in a cinema.

Jordan Horsley, 16, attacked Annette Warden as she ate with her family in a restaurant in Leeds in July.

She had earlier asked a staff member to tell him and his friends to be quiet during a screening of Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince, after their mobile phones kept going off during the film.

The teenager was found guilty of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent and handed a 12-month detention and training order.

Mrs Warden, 46, was treated in hospital but was not seriously injured.
