A man accused of throwing acid at an aspiring model and her cousin smiled and blew kisses at his supporters as he attended court.

Resham Khan, 21, and Jameel Muhktar, 37, were left with horrific neck and face injuries when acid was thrown at them through a car window on Ms Khan’s 21st birthday in Beckton, east London.

John Tomlin appeared at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday charged with two counts of grievous bodily harm with intent.

The 25-year-old grinned from the dock and blew kisses to well-wishers in the public gallery as he was led away.
