Reveller had part of nose bitten off in brawl at pub
A REVELLER had the tip of his nose bitten off during a fight in a Derbyshire pub.
Police say the 22-year-old victim has undergone plastic surgery at Royal Derby Hospital to re-attach the missing piece of nose to his face.
Five police cars were sent to the late-night brawl, at the Rising Sun, in The Green, Willington.
As well as the man whose nose was bitten, officers said five other people were injured in the fight, including a 60-year-old man.
A force spokesman said: "The report came through that there was a fight inside the Rising Sun at 11.40pm on Boxing Day.
"Officers attended and discovered there were five victims.
"A 22-year-old man had part of his nose bitten off during the fight and a 21-year-old man was also punched in the fracas.
"Another man, aged 60, suffered from head injuries during the incident."
Last night, police said no-one had been arrested in connection with the fight and the police are asking for anyone who witnessed the incident to get in contact.
The Derby Telegraph called the Rising Sun and the landlord, who did not want to be named, said the village was normally a friendly place. He said: "I have been here 17 months and there has never been any incident like this before.
"Willington is a great village, really friendly with good, loyal customers and this is the first time I have known of trouble like this here in the village.
"The man who had the tip of his nose bitten off is a regular and I have been told he has had plastic surgery which I hope goes well for him.
"I have never seen the man who attacked him before, he's certainly not a regular.
"I think this was one of those situations whereby there was an argument that looks like it got out of control.
"No-one was even drunk and the regulars waded in to help the man who was being attacked and to try to stop the fight."
Anyone with any information is asked to call the police on 101.
