Following the attack, a meat cleaver was found in undergrowth behind the parade of shops.

A search of Sun's home led to the discovery of a top with blood stains on it and three blood-stained tissues.

Det Sgt Carl Dye said: "This was a truly horrific and brutal attack on the victim - one I am sure will take her many years to get over both psychologically and physically.

"I am encouraged by the sentence imposed on Lianjun Sun and I would like to thank those who not only came to the assistance of the victim on the day, but also assisted us throughout the investigation which has enabled justice to be done."
