Man loses part of ear in Newcastle nightclub attack

A man lost part of his ear when he was assaulted in a Newcastle nightclub.

The 20-year-old man was in Digital, in Times Square, when he was attacked from behind with what Northumbria Police believe was a bottle.

He lost the top part of his right ear in the assault which happened in the early hours of Tuesday but details have just emerged.

Police said the suspect is then believed to have left with two other men. They are appealing for witnesses.

It is thought there may have been a disagreement earlier.
