A MAN has been jailed for beating his terminally ill girlfriend during an argument in their home.
George Noel, 47, was sentenced to 20 weeks in prison at Tower Hamlets' new specialist domestic violence court in a hearing last Thursday.
The Frenchman, of Westferry Road on the Isle of Dogs, attacked his partner, who is suffering a terminal illness, following an argument, punching her in the face with such force that she fell backwards, hurting her back on the bath.
Noel then repeatedly punched her in the face before locking her in the bedroom.
