A man caged for leaving a baby girl brain damaged after getting "stressed" playing his Xbox was sentenced to a further three years in jail for attacking three partners.

Dale Thomson, 27, who is currently serving four years and eight months for the baby assault, carried out the attacks on the woman in Dundee and Irvine, over an eight-year period.

Today at the High Court in Glasgow Lord Burns ordered Thomson to serve his latest sentence at the end of his current sentence.

He told Thomson: “The charges you have pled guilty to represent very serious coercive assaults – sustained violence – against these women.

“You demonstrated controlling behaviour against these women. You seem to be unable to control what you yourself described as an explosive temper."

As he was led away to the cells Thomson shouted "Spekky b****** at Lord Burns.

At Dundee Sheriff Court, Thomson admitted assaulting one woman while she was holding a baby boy, by punching her on the head in a flat in Dundee between October 1 and 24, 2010.

He also pleaded guilty to assaulting another woman in Dundee between March 1 and 31, last year by kicking and punching her and striking her against a wall.

His third victim was assaulted at a house in Irvine between June 2 and November 30, 2015.

Thomson threatened her with violence, pushed her against a door frame, choked her and seized her by the face and bit her on the forehead.

Sheriff Alastair Brown remitted the sentence to the High Court for sentence. It was dealt with today (Tuesday) by Lord Burns.

In October last year at the High Court in Glasgow Thomson was jailed for four years and eight months for violently shaking the nine-month old girl at a flat in Dundee on April 1, 2017, while he was supposed to be looking after her.

Thomson, a storeman, pled guilty to attacking the girl to her severe injury, permanent impairment and danger of her life.

He also admitted assaulting a baby boy at another house in the city in October 2010.
