A man from Telford whose violent acts against two former partners were described as "medieval torture'' has been jailed.
Dino Burley, 42, from Hollinswood was convicted of five counts of grievous bodily harm with intent. He was jailed for 21 years, West Mercia Police said.
Officers said Burley's violent acts included pushing screws into the fingers of one woman, as well as throwing another down the stairs and pouring boiling water on her feet.
The attacks took place between 1991 and 2014.
During sentencing at Shrewsbury Crown Court, Judge Robin Onions told Burley: "You are a jealous and controlling man who used extreme violence on your victims that amounted to medieval torture,'' according to West Mercia Police.
Detective Sergeant Jo Delahey from the force said: "This was a horrific series of attacks which will have long-term effects both physically and emotionally on the victims.''
