A man has been charged with attempted murder after another man was found in a garden with serious stab wounds.

The 20-year-old victim was discovered by police at the rear of a garden on Victoria Road in Blandford Forum, Dorset, in the early hours of Saturday.

He was taken to hospital with serious injuries to his leg and torso.

Craig Parry, 39, from Blandford Forum, appeared before Weymouth magistrates earlier and is due at Dorchester Crown Court on 23 November.

A 35-year-old woman who was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm, and a 24-year-old man held on suspicion of assault, have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

A 23-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man arrested in connection with the incident have been released without charge.
