A dismembered ear with a diamond stud was left behind on the pavement after it was bitten off in a fight – and if you are squeamish you might want to look away now.
A barman snapped a photo of the bloodied ear containing a diamond stud on the ground before police took it away in a sandwich bag after the incident in Huddersfield at about 9.20pm on Sunday.
Ashley Haigh, 35, a bartender, said the fight, between two groups of men was broken up by bouncers and those involved left the area.

He said someone told him there was an ear on the floor and he went to take a photograph.
“I thought why hasn’t someone got this?,” he said. “It’s not what you expect to happen.”
Police are urging the owner of the partially severed ear to come forward as they believe he did not seek medical treatment and is thought to have fled the scene.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “The male who we believe was injured in this incident has still not been traced and has not contacted police.”
He added: “We have recovered a partially severed ear, the outer section of it. It still has the diamond stud in it.”
