The man charged with attempted murder after a woman was stabbed in Hornchurch is next up in court on November 2.

Robin Faroque was arrested on the afternoon of June 28 after police had been called to reports of a stabbing in the Sainsbury's car park in Billet Lane.

The victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries which were later confirmed as not life-threatening. 

Mr Faroque was arrested at the scene, and has since been charged with attempted murder and possession of an offensive weapon.

The 27-year-old, of Brock Place in Bow, was initially meant to appear in court at the Old Bailey.

However, the case has since been transferred to Basildon Crown Court.

Faroque will appear before that court on November 2 for a plea and trial preparation hearing (PTPH).
