Town man appears in court today following Highbridge stabbing

A man has appeared in court today (Tuesday) in connection with the police investigation into a serious stabbing in Highbridge at the weekend that has left a man in a critical condition.

As first reported here, officers were called to Charlotte Court at just before 5.25pm on Saturday evening when a 37-year-old male suffered serious injuries in a stabbing.

Jamie Edney of Charlotte Court appeared at Taunton Magistrates Court today (Tuesday) charged with wounding with intent to cause GBH.

No further action is to be taken against a woman, aged 25, who was also arrested on Saturday.

As pictured above, crime scene investigators were at Charlotte Court on Monday, carrying out a detailed examination of the scene.

Police told that the victim, who was rushed to Weston General Hospital on Saturday, continues to be in a "stable, but critical condition."

Meanwhile, police have appealed for any witnesses to the incident to contact them via Taunton CID on 0845 4567000.
