A 15-year-old girl has appeared before magistrates charged with the murder of a man.

Mark Roberts, 35, was found with head injuries on Baildon Road, Weston-super-Mare, in October. He died later.

The girl has been remanded and is due before Bristol Crown Court on Friday for a custody hearing.

A 17-year-old boy has also been charged with Mr Roberts' murder and appeared in court in October. Neither can be named for legal reasons.

Two others arrested in connection with Mr Roberts's death have been released from bail with police taking no further action.
