A man has been charged with murder after a stabbing in Portsmouth.

Billy Green was found outside Pickwick House, a block of flats, in Wingfield Street in Buckland on Monday shortly before 12:45 GMT.

The 26-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lewis Green, 23, of Tewkesbury Close, Portsmouth, appeared before the city's magistrates earlier, charged with murder.

He was remanded in custody to appear before Winchester Crown Court on Monday.

In a statement released on Wednesday, his family said: "Billy will always be in our hearts and memories."

His parents said they would remember their son as a "cheeky chappy with an infectious laugh" who will be "loved forever".
