Police and the London Ambulance Servuce were called and found the 51-year-old woman with multiple stab injuries.

The victim was taken to hospital in a critical condition, but survived the ferocious attack.

The attack was believed to be as a result of a psychotic episode, that the court heard may have been contributed to by cannabis misuse.

He was originally charged with attempted murder; but a plea of wounding with intent was accepted.

He has been remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced on Wednesday, 17 January.
