stabbing victim is making a good recovery, say family
man who was stabbed in Highbridge earlier this month is making
a good recovery, his family have said this week.
Burnham-On-Sea.com first reported here
how 37 year-old James Hobbs had been attacked outside Charlotte
Court on January 15th.
Doctors said Mr Hobbs was lucky not to have died due to the severity
of the knife injuries to his throat.
Lisa Reed, his partner, said this week that Mr Hobbs has undergone
a successful blood transfusion at Bristol's Southmead Hospital
and that he had begun speaking again. She added that he is recovering
well, despite still having to be being fed through a tube.
Meanwhile, Jamie Edney, 34, of Charlotte Court in Highbridge
- who has been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous
bodily harm - will appear at Taunton Crown Court on Tuesday.
