    彼女は言いました: ‘I was made to fear for my life the night I was attacked.

    ‘Anthony kept shouting things at me, the one that sticks in my mind is ‘if you scream, I’ll finish the job’, whilst standing over me holding my crying baby, who had woke from the noise.

    ‘I couldn’t call for help because I didn’t know what would have happened next. I don’t know what would have happened to my baby, and the thought of him growing up without a mummy hurts alone.

    ‘The unprovoked attack still haunts me to this day and something which I think will haunt me forever. Being forced to stay quiet in my own home, whilst in so much pain.

    今週はじめ, Martin admitted two counts of common assault, along with cultivating cannabis plants and siphoning electricity.

    He was handed a 24-month suspended sentence, ordered to carry out 200 hours unpaid work and to complete an anger management course.

    A lifetime restraining order was imposed to protect Ellie, who is also from Kinmel Bay.

    But choking back tears, she questioned how he could have ‘got off so lightlyand admitted she’d lost faith in the justice system.

    ‘I feel totally let downand I will not continue to be silent like I have been made to be for the past 18 月,’ she said after the sentencing hearing.

    Ellie explained how she saw ‘outbursts of angerand ‘abusive behaviourwithin months of their relationship.

    彼女は言いました: ‘The attack wasn’t the first, I cannot forgive myself for not screaming for help that night or months before then when I noticed Anthony’s controlling, nasty behaviour.

    ‘Truth be told, I honestly believed this man was capable of killing me as he threatened to do so countless times over the months of knowing him.

    ‘Therefore I was far too scared of him to do anything about it. He had no care about anyone other than himself.

    After she was punched by Martin, Ellie went to Glan Clwyd hospital to have her right eye examined. Doctors confirmed she had suffered a cracked nasal wall which had left her with an eye haemorrhage.

    結果として, she needed specialist treatment at Abergele Eye Hospital.

    ‘I was struggling mentally at the time in facing up to what had happened, I hated what I had becomea victim and absolute shadow of the person I was before,’ 彼女は認めた.

    After several appointments, Ellie was referred to her doctor after persistent numbness in her right cheek and stinging sensations in her eye.

    She was told that it was very unlikely that she would ever fully regain the feeling back in her face and that over time it may only get worse.

    彼女は付け加えた: ‘I will continue to fight to get better for the sake of my son because he deserves the best mum I can be.

    ‘Never will I forget this bad memory, I think it’s going to have an effect on me forever, it changed me from the person I once was.

    ‘The physical reminder I have will forever be there due to his actions, which is something I find really difficult to live with.
