Deryck Savage, 36 from Girvan in Scotland, appeared in Carlisle Crown Court yesterday (10th June 2013) where he was sentenced to 3 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to committing an offence of grievous bodily harm  against his wife.


Savage was arrested and later charged after police were called to The Tranquil Otter lakeside retreat in Thurstonfield where the couple were staying over the Christmas period.


DC Esther Wood who dealt with the incident said:


“The attack caused very serious injuries and the victim has not fully recovered. Violence of this nature will not be tolerated and we will do all we can to bring violent offenders before the courts.”
