Two people are starting lengthy jail terms after being found guilty of throwing acid in a man’s face in Thundersley.
29 year old Ashley Russell from Basildon got 17 years.
31 year old Christina Storey from Wickford got 8 years.
Their victim – Darren Pidgeon – suffered life changing injuries.
The court heard that Russell and Storey followed Darren Pidgeon as he drove his car through Thundersley.
When the cars both stopped in a dead end, Russell approached Darren’s car, squirted acid in his face and punched him before getting back in the car which was driven off by Storey.
