A man who subjected his partner to a brutal attack, leaving her with swollen cheeks, has been jailed.  Dannie McGavigan, 43, repeatedly punched his partner in the face and dragged her through the house after she confronted him about messages from another woman in April.

The victim’s daughter called police, but McGavigan fled the address in Cambridge before officers arrived.

McGavigan, of no fixed abode, was later arrested and pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm.

He was sentenced to one year and eight months in prison at Huntingdon Law Courts last week (22 December) for this offence and a separate one of stalking and harassment in another county.
