Ear bite attacks 'costing NHS'

A surgeon on Teesside who treats people who have had an ear bitten during an assault says the region has a tendency towards this form of attack.

Figures from Middlesbrough's James Cook University Hospital showed that since 2005, 246 people have gone to casualty with such wounds.

Peter Harris reports for BBC Look North.
