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.
