The mother’s then boyfriend, Clive Raymond, aged 52, ransacked her flat in West Bromwich and then began beating her 17-year-old daughter.

Wolverhampton Crown Court was shown CCTV footage of Raymond, of Villa Street, Birmingham, punching the girl as her mother tried to separate them.

The girl then ran into the flat and returned with a kettle of water and threw it over Raymond’s shoulder and neck.
