A 25-year-old has been warned all options are open “including prison” after he admitted biting part of a man’s ear off in a Norwich club.

Macauley Marshall bit a small piece of flesh from the victim’s left earlobe off in the attack on November 17, 2018.

Marshall, of Marl Pit Lane, Norwich, has previously admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm on the victim at The Loft nightclub in Rose Lane, Norwich.

He has also admitted possession of a class B drug, namely 0.56 grams of cannabis, on the same date.

The case had been listed for sentencing yesterday.
