A man from Liverpool has been charged following a brutal attack in which a man's face was bitten off.
The victim, 31, had both ears ripped off, his nose torn away from his face, and his upper lip bitten off during a brawl outside the Funky Box club on Fleet Street in the City Centre. Only one ear was recovered at the scene.
This happened at 6.20am on Saturday - cctv
footage shows the attacker reigning blows on the man while he is lying on the floor, and then eating away at his face in an attack police say resembled “a lion wrenching the flesh from a gazelle".
Licensing officer, PC Stuart Moore said:
"It is horrific, sickening and it is almost barbaric what takes place.
"The footage shows a fight between two males. The victim and the assailant could be seen brawling in the street. Both males fall to the floor and there's a struggle.
"A second male appears to be protecting the people involved to make sure the fight continues and the assailant starts reigning blows.
"There are nine consecutive punches while he lies on the floor.
"The assailant can be seen to place his head down by the victim. He starts eating away at his face and his head.
"The male has had his two ears bitten off, part of his nose bitten off and half of his lip bitten off.
"The attack reminded me of a lion wrenching the flesh off a gazelle."
The attacker then fled the scene onto Bold Street where he cleaned the blood off himself and escaped.
The club has had it's license revoked on the advice of police and remains closed.
