A man who attacked his ex-partner has been jailed for 15 months - for breaching a suspended sentence.

Lee Orridge, aged 39, was sentenced for breaching a suspended jail term and restraining order involving his ex, Kirsty Perry.

Neil Coxon, prosecuting, said Orridge had been in a volatile relationship with the woman.

He had been issued with a suspended prison sentence following a disturbance at the home the couple shared on Queen Street, Darfield, in April.

In August police were called out again and found Miss Perry bleeding heavily from a cut to the bridge of her nose and Orridge bleeding from his mouth.

He admitted breaching a restraining order and a six-month jail term, suspended for 18 months, for assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Judge Simon Lawler said although he accepted there was violence on both sides he had breached a court order. He increased the suspended sentence to 15 months and activated the jail term in full.
