A Fife man committed a horrific catalogue of violence against a succession of partners and other females for almost two decades.

One woman was pinned down as William Rollo poked her eyes and another was hit with a glass bottle.

The offences were carried out from 2001 up until this year in various parts of Fife, including Lochore and Kirkcaldy.

The victims were four women who were then his partner and two other females, one aged just 16 at the time.
