A man is to appear for trial in connection with an alleged knife attack on another man.

It comes after police were called to a flat in Regents Way, Bamber Bridge, near Preston, on April 10 to reports a man had been stabbed several times.

The 31-year-old is also charged with possessing an offensive weapon - a kitchen knife - on the same date.
