A Romanian immigrant battered and raped a woman just 11 days after arriving in the UK having been released from prison in his home country.
Florin Moraru, 25, fled Romania when judges released him on license from a prison sentence for attacking another woman during a violent robbery.
Less than a fortnight later after his arrival in Britain, in the early hours of New Years Day, Moraru followed a young woman who had spurned his advances from a nightclub into a churchyard, crept up behind her and punched her in the face.
She fell to the floor screaming "no, no, no" but he continued to punching her until she stopped struggling and then raped her.
As he was jailed for for 10 years and eight months there were renewed calls for tighter restrictions to be placed on foreign criminals entering Britain.
Philip Hollobone, Conservative MP for Kettering, where the attack took place, said: "This was a vicious, horrendous and vile crime, which has tainted our town.
"Foreign nationals who commit crimes in the UK should serve their prison sentences in full back in their country of origin and never be allowed to re-enter the UK.
"I am afraid that whilst we remain in the EU, EU nationals with criminal records are free to travel from one EU country to another, but once we leave we can get back control of our borders and we could put a stop to free movement for criminals."
EU laws on sharing information relating to criminal records came into effect in 2012 but campaigners warn that in practice only the most dangerous criminals are flagged up by some member states.
Moraru had been sentenced to five years in prison in 2014 and was released early before moving to the UK.
On New Years Eve he had kissed the woman in a nightclub and then began pestering her for sex. When she denied his advances he followed her.
Sentencing, Judge Rupert Mayo said: "It was plain to anybody that she did not want your company.
"You waited, you were a minute behind her as you followed her into a churchyard.
"In the churchyard you brutally raped her and used your fists to smash her face in."
Passers-by who heard her screams dialled 999 and Moraru's DNA was found at the scene and he was arrested on January 6 at the car wash where he was working.
A victim impact statement read to the court described the consequences of the attack on the woman.
Nicola Moore, prosecuting, said: "She said that she felt responsible for what happened and felt physically sick when she thought about it.
"She indicated that she does not like to go out after dark and insists that she is accompanied."
Moraru initially denied causing the injuries and said the sex was consensual, but later pleaded guilty to rape and causing actual bodily harm
He was also made the subject of an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order and made to sign the sex offenders' register for life.
After the case, Detective Sergeant Nick Cobley, from Northamptonshire Police, said: "Florin Moraru is an extremely violent man who carried out a despicable act.
"His behaviour on the night of the incident was predatory and calculated, showing a high level of persistence and having no regard for his victim's rights or wishes.
"Today's sentencing has brought a swift resolution to an horrific incident, ensuring this evil man is locked up and unable to commit further offences or put anybody else through such a terrifying ordeal.
"I'd like to commend the victim for her bravery and hope today's sentencing brings some for of closure for her."
