In a victim impact statement read out in court, the woman said: "He laughed at me and gloated about what he had done.

"I've got nothing left. He destroyed my home... he put me in hospital and I was so afraid that he would come back for me."

In his mitigation, Dron claimed he could not remember the attack. He pleaded guilty to all charges later in court.

Judge Fowler told Dron: "You've got to address your violent tendencies or you're going to find yourself leaving a trail of damaged people behind you and facing longer periods in custody."

Dron was sentenced to 27 months in prison.
