A man has appeared before court charged with the murder of an 87-year-old woman at a care home near Bristol.

Police were called to Oaktree House, Yate, on Wednesday after Una Dorney was found dead.

Ryan Guest, 33, of Birkdale appeared before North Avon Magistrates' Court earlier to answer charges relating to the death of Una Dorney.

His case was transferred to Bristol Crown Court and he has been remanded in custody until 23 June.

A spokeswoman for Oaktree House said it was supporting the family during this "deeply distressing time".

Avon and Somerset Police described the death as "tragic".

Guest is not an employee of the care home.
