But what on earth is a 78-year-old man doing with pornography?
A 70-year-old woman and grandmother of three, Lynda Holmes attacked and beat her 78-year-old husband Gordon Holmes - with a 'meat hammer' after she caught him watching porn at their home. Mr Holmes who was left with severe head injuries, escaped her brutal onslaught and ran into the street telling neighbours his wife had gone mad. After her arrest, his wife later told officers that he shouldn't have dared to watch porn. According to her, "He hasn’t touched me for over 10 years and now he’s watching porn. How dare he? How do I go about getting 10 years of my life back?"
Recounting the experience, her husband, Gordon admitted to be partially responsible for bringing on the attack because of his ‘selfishness’. He played in a band, played golf and spent time away from home without supporting his wife, he said.
Lynda who pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm, was given a 10-month prison sentence.
