A BARNSLEY man has been charged in connection with the stabbing of two women in Cudworth on Sunday.

Emergency services were called at around 1am on Sunday after reports that two women, aged 45 and 40, had been seriously injured inside a property on Church Street.

Both women were taken to hospital and the 40-year-old has been discharged - the elder woman remains in a stable condition at the hospital.

David Fairweather, 43, was charged on Monday with two counts of wounding with intent at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court.

He has been remanded into custody until his next court appearance at Sheffield Crown Court next year.
