Police have charged a teen over a bleach attack on a mother who had asked a group to be quiet during a Harry Potter film.

The 46-year-old woman was with her husband and two children at the Vue cinema in Leeds, Britain, last week.

During a screening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince she asked a group of at least five teenagers to stop making a noise.

West Yorkshire Police said two people in the group followed the family to a nearby restaurant after the screening and threw bleach over the mother's head and back.

She suffered burns to her skin and possible permanent damage to her eyes.

A 16-year-old boy will appear before a Leeds magistrate on Monday, charged with wounding with intent to commit grievous bodily harm.

Police said another teen was arrested over the incident, but has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
