Forensics at the scene of suspected fatal stabbing in Teynham

Three men are being questioned on suspicion of murder after a man suffered a fatal stab wound near Faversham early this morning.

The 21-year-old was discovered lying on the ground outside a block of flats in London Road, Teynham, at about 2am.

Police had been called to the same address half-an-hour earlier after reports of an argument - only to resolve the issue and leave.

The injured man, from Sittingbourne, was taken to Medway Maritime Hospital, but was pronounced dead shortly after.

A post mortem is due to be carried out this afternoon.
