Man extradited from Ireland to face murder bid charge


A man from Bristol has been charged with attempted murder after being extradited from Ireland.

Simeon Langford, from the St Paul's area of the city, was formally removed on Friday following a ruling by the High Court in Dublin.

The 32-year-old was tracked down in Ireland by officers from Avon and Somerset Police, and was held in Cork in August last year after a European Arrest Warrant was issued.

Langford, who was brought back to a UK custody centre in the Avon and Somerset area, has now been charged with attempted murder, grievous bodily harm and theft. He has also been recalled to prison under the terms of his licence.

The charges relate to an assault on a woman in the St Paul's area of Bristol on June 2 2015 and the attempted murder of a woman in Wilder Street in Bristol on June 11 2015.

Langford has been remanded in custody and will appear at Bristol Magistrates' Court on Saturday.
