The slashing left the victim with a permanent scar and needing medical treatment which was "worse than childbirth".

She had been on a hen night before going back to Andrew Fearnley's address in Gorleston, where things "got heated" and she left to go to her mother's house nearby after she had been pushed and struck in the face by Fearnley.

She thought she had been punched but he had slashed her in the face with a knife resulting in serious injury to her nose.

Fearnley, 54, of Drudge Road, Gorleston, was sentenced at Norwich Crown Court on Monday (October 21) to five years and ten months in prison.

He had admitted wounding with intent following the incident on June 29.

The court heard the slashing came a year after Fearnley was sentenced for battery against the same victim.
