"I had dreams for my future and dreams to achieve my dreams. I am now traumatised, scared, drained and frightened.

"What sort of life is this? It's not. It's an existence. I haven't been able to work and I loved my job.

"I used to love my life, my friends and family, my work, my independence, my hopes and dreams. But all that changed. One day in October, because of one person.

"My life turned upside down and my dreams disappeared."

Investigating Officer, Detective Constable Tim Faltermeyer, said: "I hope that the victim can somehow find the strength to get on with the rest of her life knowing that justice has been served.

"This was a horrifying and traumatising hour-long attack on an innocent young woman and I would like to commend her for the sheer bravery she has shown throughout the court process.

"I would also like to thank the couple who witnessed and intervened and called police that morning, without them who knows how long the attack could have lasted.

"I hope this reassures anybody who may have been a victim of sexual assault or rape that we take reports extremely seriously and specialist officers will always investigate fully and sensitively."

Mogridge was sentenced to 18 years behind bars, 14 of which custodial with four years on licence.
