Patrick Simms, 27, of Manor House, north London, who kept a woman prisoner in his flat for four days, raping her twice, whipping her and repeatedly punching and kicking her was jailed for eight years.

The Old Bailey was told that the 21-year-old secretary escaped by jumping from a first-floor window. Judge Neil Denison QC said Simms had treated her 'not as a fellow human being, but a piece of property'.
