Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A THUG who bit off the ear of his sis­ter’s boyfriend in a “bar­baric piece of vi­o­lence” was jailed for 11 years yes­ter­day.

John Gre­gory, 29, ripped off the top part of Shahzad Qureshi’s left ear be­fore spit­ting it on the ground.

Mr Qureshi en­dured im­mense pain and needed plas­tic surgery on the per­ma­nent dis­fig­ure­ment, Snares­brook Crown Court heard.

The IT con­sul­tant was also forced to take two months off work and had to en­dure the taunts of col­leagues and friends.

Gre­gory, of Rom­ford, Es­sex, was con­victed of wound­ing with in­tent to cause griev­ous bod­ily harm and theft.

Gre­gory had stormed into his sis­ter’s flat in Bark­ing, Es­sex, where he be­gan rain­ing blows on Qureshi.

Gre­gory then tried to throw him down the stairs and through a win­dow, be­fore smash­ing his head against a wall.

“The next thing I re­mem­ber is him lean­ing over and he ripped my ear off with his teeth.” said Qureshi.

“Then he just ca­su­ally walked off with his back to me then spat the ear out on the floor.”

Pass­ing sen­tence Judge Mur­ray Shanks de­scribed the at­tack as “a shock­ing and bar­baric piece of vi­o­lence”. NOW here’s some­thing you won’t see in The Wool­pack – babe Natalie An­der­son’s beau­ti­ful boob!

The foxy ac­tress who plays jail­bird Ali­cia Gal­lagher in the ITV1 soap flashed nearly all of her pert right breast out­side Lon­don’s posh Grosvenor Ho­tel while wear­ing a sexy low-cut dress.

The Brad­ford babe, 31, was at the swanky joint for the Pride Of Bri­tain Awards.

An in­sider “Natalie’s knock­ers – now they are the real pride of Bri­tain!”
