A SECOND man has appeared in court this morning (Thursday) charged with attempted murder after a stabbing in Weston at the weekend.

Robert Weatherman, aged 41, faced magistrates at North Somerset Courthouse following an incident near his home in Alfred Street on Sunday night.

Police were called at around 11pm to reports that a man had suffered serious injuries.

On arrival, officers found alleged victim Lou Walters with a number of stab wounds to the chest – and quick first aid applied by police is thought to have saved his life.

Yesterday, 18-year-old Kieran Brooks of Alfred Street was formally charged with attempted murder, and today Weatherman was arraigned on the same charge.
