A yob who terrorised a town centre in a drunken rampage and bit another man’s EAR off has been jailed for six years.

Douglas Witterick, 29, and his friend Barry Angus, 28, attacked bouncers in the Unique bar in St Neots, Cambs., on December 5 last year.

Witterick then hijacked a Renault Clio to take him to his nearby home in St Neots where he collected a knife before returning to Unique and threatening to kill the bouncers.

Police caught up with the thugs at the Corner House pub where they interrupted a fight between Witterick and Stewart Hay.

Tom Bowden, prosecuting, told Huntingdon Crown Court that ”half of Mr Hay’s ear had been bitten off” by Witterick and was never recovered.

Angus and Witterick, both from St Neots, near Cambridge, were sentenced by Judge Nicholas Coleman on Friday.

Barry Angus had previously pleaded guilty of affray and was given a 12-month prison sentence suspended for 12 months and 250 hours of community work.

Witterick had previously pleaded guilty to two counts of threatening to kill, possession of an offensive weapon, two counts of assault by beating, affray and assault and causing grievous bodily harm.

He was given an extended six-year sentence for public protection of which he will serve half, with an additional five years of licence added to the usual three.
