Clive Mantle 'shell shocked' after two men cleared of attack

Casualty and Holby City actor had part of his ear bitten off in incident in Newcastle hotel corridor

An actor best known for appearing in the BBC hospital dramas Casualty and Holby City said he was "utterly shell-shocked" after two men were cleared of an attack on him in which part of his ear was bitten off.

Clive Mantle said it was worrying that violent acts go unpunished after a jury cleared the men of GBH with intent and the lesser charge of GBH a jury.

Philip McGilvray, 33, admitted biting the 6ft 5in actor's ear after they clashed in a Newcastle hotel corridor in a late-night row over noise last March, but claimed self defence.

He and his friend Alan French, 32, also from Hamilton, Scotland, were cleared by a Newcastle crown court jury which deliberated for almost five hours.
