Dover resident Nigel Scutt witnessed the aftermath of the incident.

He said: “About quarter to two yesterday afternoon, I clocked the air ambulance hovering above the clock tower.

“About ten minutes later it landed in the De Bradelei Wharf car park in Townwall Street and was met by two land ambulances.

He added: “Apparently there was some sort of incident, this chap had been stabbed in his right arm. He had blood on his forehead and marks on his other arm.

“He didn’t seem to be too badly injured and I’m not being unsympathetic but he walked from the back of the ambulance to the air ambulance. It was fairly odd to use the air ambulance when he was walking.

“There was a lady that may or may not have been being treated for shock. She was taken in the other ambulance.”

Police were also at the scene.
