A man who bit, strangled and stamped upon his girlfriend after an argument, has been jailed for 10 years.

Lee Edwards, 29, from Lever Street in Middleton, turned on his partner one night last August. He threw her onto the stairs before punching her so hard he broke her cheek bone.

The thug did not stop there. He bit her face and, as she tried to crawl away, stamped on her neck and back. Then, he tried to strangle her.

Thankfully, she survived. She escaped after he went to sleep.
