A woman who survived the Manchester Arena bombing was left permanently disfigured when a pub-goer savagely attacked her and bit off a part of her ear.  

Amy Bruce, who was among the survivors of the terror attack in 2017,  had been with friends at a pub in Winlaton, Gateshead, when they encountered Sophie Watson - who was intoxicated on alcohol and cannabis.

Miss Bruce and her friend Elizabeth Brown decided to leave the pub following a disturbance and were waiting for a friend to come out from the toilet when Watson, 21, became paranoid they were laughing at her.

Watson marched over to the pair and dragged Miss Brown by her hair, swinging her around and to the ground before punching her, Newcastle Crown Court heard.

Others, including Miss Bruce, sought to intervene to stop the attack when Watson latched onto Miss Bruce's ear and bit a small portion off.

Sophie Watson, 21, of Red Barns, Newcastle, was convicted by a jury of wounding with intent, assault by beating and affray
