A man has been jailed for trying to murder a pregnant woman by stabbing her six times in the stomach.

Worcester Crown Court heard Rachel Kane was found injured in the Comberton area of Kidderminster in July.

The 25-year-old gave birth to a healthy baby less than a week later, three months premature, police said.

Her former partner Andre Omar Smith, 25, from Great Barr, Birmingham, was sentenced to 15 years after admitting attempted murder.

Police said the victim was unlikely to be able to have any more children.
