A man has appeared in court charged with killing a member of a scooter club during a rally at a holiday park.

Police were called to reports of a serious assault at about 02:20 GMT on Saturday at Sandford Holiday Park, near Wareham, in Dorset.

The victim, named locally as Dave "Chewie" Coxon, 36, of the Cyder Commando Scooter Club, was found dead.

Jason James, 41, of Charles Road in Torquay, Devon, is charged with manslaughter.

Bournemouth magistrates remanded Mr James in custody until a hearing at Winchester Crown Court on Wednesday to decide whether he should be granted bail.

The park had been hosting a 40th anniversary rally of the Modrapheniacs Scooter Club.
