A man from Eastbourne who attacked a woman with a knife has started more than nine years behind bars.

Paul Ingram, 44 targeted her at random on Seaside back in April.

Earlier that day he had already punched a 72-year-old man he didn't know.

Detective Constable Carly Owen said: "This was an appalling assault on both victims who were going about their daily business; both suffered injuries and the attacks have had an impact on their lives. Hopefully the sentence will go some way to helping them move on from what happened, knowing justice has been served.

"I would like to thank both victims for reporting what happened and the public who were witnesses. Our swift response in arresting Ingram meant the court could deal with him accordingly."
