A man has been jailed after threatening to throw acid on his ex-girlfriend’s face if she told a court about the years of abuse he subjected her to.

Antony J Scott physically assaulted his victim in multiple incidents – punching her while driving, pushing her and pulling her hair.

Gloucester Crown Court heard how on one occasion he shouted at her, ‘who the f**k are you talking to’ when he saw her speaking on the phone.

The 42-year-old then slammed her with both hands to the chest, forcing her head to hit a chest of drawers.

As his partner desperately tried to ring 999, he grabbed her phone and smashed it in the wooden bedframe of her bed. A few days later she found a clump of hair on the floor.

The court was also told of the humiliation he put her through, isolating her from friends and family, checking her mobile and ordering her who she was allowed to meet.
