"Lee was in a rage. I went up to the children. I came downstairs. Lee threw the glass at the kitchen wall.
"I was just asking him to leave.
"He then went upstairs, the children were still in the bath. I went upstairs because I did not want him anywhere near my children."
Miss Ranson fell down the stairs but got up and went to the bathroom.
She said: "Lee was in my bedroom. I told him to get out the house. He swung around and punched my television. It was in pieces.
"He came towards me and head-butted me. I think I lost consciousness. He head-butted me twice. My nose was pouring with blood.
"I was in a complete and utter daze. I did not know what had gone on.
"He then punched me to my right eye and cut me open where my eyebrow is.
"My children were screaming. I just wanted to make sure they were OK.
"He left. I went downstairs. I knocked on next door and asked for help. I had blood everywhere."
