A 26-year-old man has been charged with assault after a man suffered severe injuries when he was hit by a pint glass thrown in a Birmingham pub.

Simon Morris, 31, from Hagley in Worcestershire, was at The Victoria in John Bright Street on 3 August when the glass was thrown.

He had to undergo a five-hour operation to rebuild part of his skull.

A man has been charged and bailed to appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on 6 November.

He was also charged with assault relating to another incident that West Midlands police are investigating, which happened in the same pub on the same evening.

The force said a 24-year-old man, arrested at the same time, was also charged with assault for that attack.

He will appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on 6 November.
