A Swindon man has been jailed for seven-and-a-half years after attacking his partner causing her to sustain three broken ribs.

Stephen Lindores, 29, of no fixed abode, was sentenced at Swindon Crown Court today after pleading guilty to GBH with intent.

On August 7 2018, Lindores assaulted his partner in a sustained attack which left her requiring hospital treatment. 

Det Con Matt Lewis, from the Public Protection Department, said: “Lindores launched a sustained attack on his partner which left her in severe pain. This was a serious assault and I am pleased that this has been taken into consideration and is reflected in the sentence he has been given.

“I would urge anyone that is experiencing domestic abuse to seek help. We have specialist officers to support victims of domestic abuse, and in this particular case, the victim has been supported by Swindon Women’s Aid who have been able to provide her with support through an understandably difficult time.”

The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme, known as Clare's Law, allows you to find out if your partner poses a risk of violence or abuse.

Under Clare's Law, a member of the public can also make enquiries into the partner of a close friend or family member.
