The court was told an ex-partner of the defendant's was jailed for 12 years for an attack on her that resulted in her losing sight in one eye and having difficulties with sight in the other eye.

Graham Parkin, mitigating, said his client was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder from a horrendous attack at the hands of her ex-partner, who was jailed for 12 years for causing her life-changing injuries, which includes permanent sight loss in one eye.

Mr Parkin said: "Her fear is he is going to be released and back on the scene."

"You didn't plead guilty. Your victim had to give evidence in court and go through it all, it does not show a smack of remorse."

Walker was sentenced to three months in prison.

The judge added: "This sentence is a short, sharp shock so people know revenge porn means prison."
