A mother-of-four required six operations after a stranger bit off the tip of her nose at her 31st birthday party.

Lucy Rivers, from Southampton, said everyone was ‘in good spirits’ as she celebrated birthday with boyfriend Kevin Brown, 31, in November 2013.

The group first went to the pub and then a casino before one of them suggested they go to a house party nearby.

‘It was my birthday night out and my friends weren’t taking no for an answer, so I tagged along,’ Lucy told The Sun.

Lucy said she soon felt guilty that her boyfriend didn’t know anybody at the party, and suggested they leave. It was then that Carolyn Sherred, who was hosting the party, threw a cigarette butt at her.

‘It came out of nowhere. Carolyn followed me out of the door and started yelling abuse at me. She had a crazed, evil look in her eyes,’ she said.

‘Before I knew it, she had launched herself at me, grabbing the back of my head and pulling me to the ground. I barely knew what was happening when I felt her bite me, sinking her teeth down hard into my nose.’

Lucy was taken first to Southampton General Hospital and then to Salisbury to be assessed by a plastic surgeon.

Lucy, who said she ‘felt like a monster’ because of how she looked, underwent reconstructive surgery 13 days later and spent weeks recovering in hospital. She has since returned for five further operations.

Sherred, 23, was sentenced to 21 months’ jail by Bournemouth Crown and County Court last June after she admitted to grievous bodily harm.
