Adaptavist ScriptRunner for JIRA: How to show custom field (multi-line) in a Web Panel?

Hi, we are using Jira 8.2.1 and Scriptrunner

We added a Web Panel on the Issue View where we show some custom field values. The custom fields are multi-line text types but on the issue view the value is shown as one single line without any breaks. For example:

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3

is shown as:

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3


Our code:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

def issue = context.issue as Issue

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

def cFieldInstance = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(10607L)
def cFieldInstanceName = cFieldInstance.getFieldName()
def cFieldSteps = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(10606L)
def cFieldStepsName = cFieldSteps.getFieldName()
def cFieldActualResults = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(10604L)
def cFieldActualResultsName = cFieldActualResults.getFieldName()
def cFieldExpectedResults = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(10603L)
def cFieldExpectedResultsName = cFieldExpectedResults.getFieldName()

def cFieldInstanceValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cFieldInstance)
def cFieldStepsValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cFieldSteps)
def cFieldActualResultsValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cFieldActualResults)
def cFieldExpectedResultsValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cFieldExpectedResults)

writer.write(cFieldInstanceName + ": " + cFieldInstanceValue + "<br>")
writer.write(cFieldStepsName + ": " + cFieldStepsValue + "<br>")
writer.write(cFieldExpectedResultsName + ": " + cFieldExpectedResultsValue + "<br>")
writer.write(cFieldActualResultsName + ": " + cFieldActualResultsValue + "<br>")

Thanks for help.
