Manners fell asleep but became violent and abusive when the woman tried to wake him after being told to take him elsewhere.

He kicked her to the stomach and bit her hand.

Her mother was then attacked when she tried to intervene to protect her daughter.

She was punched to the mouth, causing bleeding.

Manners, of Lincombe Bank, Gledhow, pleaded guilty to two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

The court heard he was given a 44-month prison sentence in 2017 for an offence of wounding in which a victim was stabbed.

Phillip Morris, mitigating, said Manners pleaded guilty to the offences at an early stage and was sorry for what he had done.

Mr Morris said Manners had been in a relationship with the woman for a brief period and it has now ended

Manners was given a 15-month sentence after Judge Robin Mairs said the offences were aggravated by the fact that they took place in the home of one of the victims.

He was also made the subject of a three-year restraining order banning him from contacting either victim.
