Sonia’s daughter, Anna, said: ‘My mum has been just so amazingly brave.’

Anna described seeing her mother’s face after the attack as a ‘nightmare’.

‘Mum was beaten, bruised, bleeding and we thought we were going to lose her,’ she added.

Sonia’s family praised the Bobby Van charity who increased the security of her home following the attack and the volunteers from the victim support unit who helped her through the ordeal.

‘It was just amazing, the amount of support – and all from charities. They get a shoestring budget and those domestic violence support workers, the lady in the court and so on – they’re all volunteers,’ said Anna.
