Wright, 29, of Poulton Road, Fleetwood, pleaded guilty to four offences of assault.

He was jailed for three months and ordered to pay £500 compensation to his victim with £200 costs by District Judge Rhys Williams.

He also put Wright on a five year restraining order which banned him from contacting the victim and entering her home or workplace.

The judge told Wright: “This was appalling behaviour.”

Prosecutor, Pam Smith, said on one occasion the victim described Wright as “flipping” when she put her daughter in her bed and he shouted at her “where am I supposed to sleep”.

During the vicious attack, he shoved her head against the wall and she lost consciousness.

She came too with him on her back.

He strangled her until she struggled for breath and then he bit her on the lip and cheek.

In other attacks he punched her on the back of the head, pushed her into a car and gripped her head and shook it.

In an impact statement to the court, the victim said she was scared in her home, struggle to sleep, suffered from nerves and avoided certain places, following the attack.

Steven Townley, defending, said his client, who had no previous convictions, was adamant he had not bitten or strangled the victim.

Mr Townley added:”This was a relationship which was permeated by jealousy. The victim said in court she believed he was involved with other females.”

Wright had lost his job as a result of the offences and would not be able to work in that line of employment again because of his conviction.
