An 18-year-old man arrested over a knife attack on three girls at a Dorset bus stop has been charged.

Charlotte Teague, 14, Sophie Hyne, 15, both from Bridport, and Kirsty Edwards, 17, from Staffordshire, were seriously hurt in the stabbing on Wednesday.

Ian Andrew Ruby, from Bridport, will appear before magistrates in Bournemouth on Monday.

The girls had just got off a bus in East Street. Dorset Police have not released details of the charge.

Kirsty was on holiday from Staffordshire, visiting Sophie and Charlotte.

They had been to an amusement arcade in nearby Weymouth before catching the No 31 bus home.

All three girls remain in a stable condition on a general ward in Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester.
