TWO teenage girl torturers smirked for the cameras yesterday after a court heard how they used a vacuum cleaner to leave a vulnerable young man in agony.
Danielle Sinclair, 17, placed the nozzle of the cleaner over the vict im’s eye and pr ivate par t s and switched it on. She also bludgeoned the man 16 times with a metal pole.
Paige Sharp, 16, repeatedly punched the 21-year-old and set his jeans on fire. She was only 15 at the time of the assault.
A shocked sheriff described the attack – filmed on a mobile phone by another teenager – as "degrading" and "almost feral".
Lawyers for Sinclair and Sharp said they were ashamed of what they had done, but they were both smiling as guards led them from court in handcuffs.
