Lawyer repeatedly punches designer over spare seat at Royal Opera House in London

A lawyer accused of punching a fashion designer several times because he moved seats at the opera has said he was defending his partner.

Matthew Feargrieve, 43, denies assaulting Ulrich Engler during a performance at the Royal Opera House in London on 7 October 2018 after Mr Engler moved Feargrieve’s partner’s jacket to claim an empty seat.

Feargrieve, an investment funds lawyer, is accused of attacking Mr Engler with a “constant flow of blows” but says he just pushed him, claiming it was Mr Engler who started the row.
