A man has been charged with stabbing two men at university accommodation in Southampton.

Paramedics arrived at the city's Solent University's Kimber halls on Wednesday afternoon and found two students, aged 18 and 23, with knife wounds.

They were taken to hospital where one needed surgery for non-life threatening injuries. The other man was discharged.

Hamza Himdy, from Luton, has been charged with two counts of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent.

The 20-year-old, of Clarendon Road, was also charged with possession of an offensive weapon.

He appeared before magistrates earlier and was remanded in custody to appear at Southampton Crown Court on 18 March.
