He admitted assaulting Deborah Belshaw on the same day and causing damage worth £200 to a television and door belonging to her.

Belshaw's community order also states he will have an electronically-monitored curfew, requiring him to be at home from 7pm to 7am for three months, and must attend up to 30 rehabilitation activity days.

He was told to pay £85 towards prosecution costs and £95 to help fund victim services.

The bench did not order him to pay any compensation as it would affect “family relations, which are starting to mend”.
