A man from Nottingham found guilty of raping and wounding a 22-year-old woman has been detained for an indeterminate sentence at a Young Offenders' Centre.

Joseph Moran was told he would have to serve a minimum term of six and a half years before he could be considered for release.

Sentencing, Judge James Sampson, said Moran posed a significant risk of serious harm to women and described the attack on his victim as sustained, savage and horrific.
