POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man had his ear bitten off in a "totally unprovoked" attack in a Glasgow KFC outlet.

The victim was set upon by two young men in the city's Renfield Street KFC at around 11pm on Friday.

Detectives hunting the attackers said it was a "particularly violent" assault. The victim and his friend were confronted by three men and a woman while standing in the queue and, as they tried to leave, two of the men attacked the 28-year-old man.
