A man accused of the Truro acid attack goes up in court.


Businessman Andreas Christopheros had the chemical thrown in his face at his home in the city.

He is now being treated at a specialist unit after he was originally taken to Treliske, fighting for his life.

48 year old David Phillips from Hastings is charged with grievous bodily harm, after being arrested in Sussex.

He appeared in front of Truro magistrates on Monday and has been remanded in custody to appear before Truro Crown Court on 6th January.

A 16 year old has been released without charge.
