A Rock Ferry man who bit off part of another man's ear outside a supermarket has been jailed for 20 months after pleading guilty to wounding.

36 year old Russell Worgan and his victim started fighting outside Lidl's in Rock Ferry.

Liverpool Crown Court heard that Worgan was angry because he believed there had been an incident between his girlfriend the victim while he had been in jail.

Supermarket security staff called the police and later arrested Worgan at his home. 

The court heard how the victim had to put his thumb in his attacker's eye to get him off and then discovered part of his ear was missing.
