One man has been found guilty and another not guilty of causing grievous bodily harm with intent after a stabbing in Bath.

A jury at Bristol Crown Court found Nathan Dixon, 23, of Coxley Drive, Bath, guilty and Karl Gordon, 25, of Julian Road, in the city, not guilty.

Dixon was also found guilty of possessing an offensive weapon.

The 24-year-old victim was left with serious injuries following the attack in Gay Street on 7 April.

He was treated at the Royal United Hospital, but has since been discharged.

Speaking outside court, Det Insp Julie Mackay said the incident was a "serious assault" which left a man in hospital and part of the city centre cordoned-off.

"Today Nathan Dixon has been held to account for his actions and is facing a lengthy prison sentence," she said.

"This demonstrates the vigour with which we will tackle knife crime to ensure people across Avon and Somerset are safe and feel safe."

Dixon was remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced on 10 September.
