The Recorder of Belfast issued a warning yesterday that domestic violence on children “will not be tolerated by the courts” as he jailed a man for attacking his son.

Judge Stephen Fowler QC imposed a 14-month sentence on the father-of-three for strangling and slapping his teenage son in a drunken incident last February.

The defendant, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Belfast Crown Court via a video-link with his solicitor’s office.
