After being arrested at his hotel, he said he had been drunk and had turned around to hit the person directly behind him after having his shirt ripped in the mosh pit.

His victim suffered a deep cut above her right eye and had to go to A&E – where she spotted Shuttleworth having treatment on his hand.

Shuttleworth was jailed for seven months and given seven months on licence at Manchester Crown Court after being charged with actual bodily harm.
