Woman jailed for biting another woman’s ear during argument about UB40 record

The two women had a fight on a pub dancefloor in in Bradford

A woman has been jailed for four years for biting a chunk off another woman’s ear because she turned off a UB40 record at a pub disco.

Sophia Blackburn pinned Stacey Wilkinson to the dancefloor after a fight at the DJ booth in the Horse And Groom pub in Bradford on May 25 last year.

Wilkinson told the Daily Mail: “My uncle was the DJ on the night and he’d asked me to sort out the last three songs for the night, which would take us up to 11pm.”


“UB40 had been playing and when I put the next track on she just went nuts and attacked me.’

Blackburn was convicted by a jury at Bradford Crown Court last month of wounding Miss Wilkinson with intent to cause her grievous bodily harm.

The court heard how Blackburn got angry when her choice of music was turned off. She punched Wilkinson to the floor, climbed on top of her and bit half her ear off before spitting it out and leaving the pub.

In other UB40 news, the band were forced to apologise yesterday following a gig in Cambridge, after several fans complained about noise levels. One claimed the performance was so loud it caused her ears to bleed.
