Two men arrested after a man had a chunk of his ear bitten off during an assault in an Ipswich nightspot will not face charges.

The incident occurred at Revolution Ipswich, formerly Vodka Revolution, in the Cattle Market in May.

The victim – a 29-year-old from Stowmarket - was said to have lost a strip of his left ear as a result of an altercation.

A 28-year-old man from Ipswich and a 39-year-old man from Leiston were originally detained on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

After being interviewed by officers the suspects were released on police bail pending further enquiries.

However Anne-Marie Breach, a spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary, said the inquiry had now concluded and there was insufficient evidence to charge either of the men who were arrested.

They have both been told they will face no further action.
