A Guisborough man has been jailed after a savage seven-hour attack on his ex-partner which caused her horrific injuries.
Teesside Crown Court had heard how 32-year-old Dean Wise punched, kicked and strangled his former partner after a night of drinking in his home in Guisborough.
The Court heard that the woman was left in agony and suffered several bone fractures in the attack.
Mr Wise pleaded guilty to wounding with intent, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour and intentional strangulation.
In court yesterday he was sentenced to five years and three months in prison.
A flat in Guisborough has been ordered to be closed due to crime, suspected drug dealing and reports of antisocial behaviour.
Magistrated ordered that the flat be closed for three months after hearing reports of ongoing antisocial behaviour and crime, including children being used in a suspected crack cocaine dealing operation.
Teesside Magistrates Court was also told that machetes, combat knives and a rifle had been seen at the property at Wilson Court on Cleveland Street in the town.
In total over 25 incidents and police intelligence reports relating to the property were made.
The 50-year-old female tenant has been evicted from the house after magistrates agreed to Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council’s closure order application.
Emergency services are joining forces to tackle deliberate fires on Eston Hills as it was revealed arson attacks across Teesside cost the local economy £25million pounds.
Cleveland Fire Brigade and Cleveland Police will work closely together against deliberate fire setting on the hills and other outdoor spaces in Redcar and Cleveland.
This will include high-visibility patrols and the use of drones.
The new co-operation comes as it was revealed that in 2022/2023, 85% of all fires Cleveland Fire Brigade attended were deliberately set, and it cost the Teesside economy a staggering £25million pounds.
Almost 5,000 fires were deliberately set in the last financial year across Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, and Stockton, 59 of which were on Eston Hills.
