Man charged with motorist's murder

A man is due to appear in court charged over the fatal stabbing of a motorist in broad daylight.

Steven Branscombe, 42, of Boswell Street, Birkenhead, is accused of murdering Marc Clarke, also aged 42.

The victim was taken to hospital following the incident in Bebington, Wirral, on Friday but later died.

A post-mortem examination showed Mr Clarke, of Bebington, died from multiple stab wounds.

According to local reports, two vehicles had been involved in an accident in Teehey Lane shortly before an altercation at the scene just after 3pm.

The incident took place in a built-up area and police believe several witnesses may have captured the circumstances on their mobile phones.

A Merseyside Police spokeswoman said: "Steven Branscombe will appear at Wirral Magistrates' Court on Monday January 30."
