POLICE IN THE United Kingdom are appealing for the owner of a severed ear to come forward.

Images posted online show the body part – with diamond stud still intact – lying on a footpath.

It was found in the town of Huddersfield, and is believed to have become separated from its owner during a brawl last night.

The Guardian quotes a police spokesperson as saying the man has not yet made contact with police.

Two others have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the attack.

Ashley Haigh posted an uncensored version of the image on Twitter, with the hashtag ‘bling’. He told the Huffington Post that police took the ear away in a sandwich bag.
