A teenager has been sentenced to eight years for his role in a vicious acid attack that left a man with 47 per cent burns, writes Lorraine King.

The attack on Awais Akram was so ferocious that the judge at the Old Bailey lifted the court order today that had previously prevented the Times from identifying Fabion Luci as one of the three people involved.

The 17-year-old from Harlesden was acquitted of conspiracy to murder Mr Akram but was convicted of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

This afternoon, he was ordered to serve his sentence at a young offenders' institute.

Vakas was convicted of conspiracy to murder and sentenced to 30 years today and Adell was found guilty of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm and handed down 14 years.
