A man has been charged with murder after another was fatally stabbed during an assault at a home in Somerset.

Philip Jones, 50, was found by officers at a property in Huish Court, Radstock, on Saturday.

He died at the scene and a post-mortem examination concluded he had been stabbed multiple times.

Meshach Caven-Thompson, 32, of Abbey Church Yard, Bath, has been charged over his death.

He appeared before magistrates in Bath earlier and is due to appear at Bristol Crown Court on Monday.

Five other people have been arrested during the investigation.

Three men - aged 38, 35 and 33 - have been released under investigation, a 28-year-old woman has been released on police bail and another man, 23, has been released with no further action.
