AFTER spending 47 days remanded in custody, a man who slammed his former partner's head against a Wisbech pub wall was freed by magistrates who sentenced him this week.

Nick Clifton will be supervised by the probation service for the next 18 months, and must pay �100 compensation to his victim Melanie Knight.

Clifton, who had also admitted charges of threatening behaviour against his ex-partner and damaging a window at her home, was also ordered to pay another �80 compensation for damaging her phone, and �50 for damaging a window.

Fenland magistrates were told how Clifton - who had drunk six or seven pints before the assault -had grabbed Ms Knight round the throat, and poked her in the eye.
