A man who beat his pregnant girlfriend with a metal pole and attacked her with a knife has been jailed for 12 years.

Mohammed, of Nursery Close, Oxford was found guilty of GBH following a trial at Oxford Crown Court.
Det Sgt Adrian Thomas, from Thames Valley Police, said the sentence "reflects the horrific nature of the abuse the victim suffered".
