Xeneral Webster, 19, (inset) admitted manslaughter over the death of Joanne Rand, who was hit with sulphuric acid as she sat on a bench in Frogmoor, High Wycombe.

But she died 11 days later from multiple organ failure after contracting septicaemia due to the burns. Webster was later seen on CCTV riding away from the scene of the attack, carrying a bottle of acid.
