First published in News

A butcher accused of biting off half a man’s ear in a nightclub has been cleared of all charges by a jury.

Gary Maguire, 38, of Clifford Road, Blackpool, was found not guilty at Oxford Crown Court of one count of wounding with intent and a lesser offence of unlawful wounding.

He was alleged to have attacked Ryan Knight in Banbury’s Sound Exchange nightclub on March 3 last year.

But he told the jury it would have been impossible for him to bite into Mr Knight’s ear because he wears dentures.
