A BARNSLEY man who assaulted his wife has had his sentence reduced following an appeal at Sheffield Crown Court.

Kevin Clark, 51, managing director of Windsor Foods, had his sentence cut to four months in jail, suspended for two years, by Mr Recorder Hill-Baker.

Clark, of Redland Grove, Staincross, was originally jailed for 26 weeks at Barnsley Magistrates' Court after admitting attacking his wife Kimberley.

The attack, which the court heard lasted up to 15 minutes, happened after Clark, Mrs Clark and the man he suspected of having an affair with her had been on a night out at a pub in Hoyland.

After being originally sentenced at Barnsley Magistrates' Court, District Judge John Foster said: "I have recently not heard a worse domestic violence case. This was a shocking assault."
