An investigation is under way after a teenage girl was attacked by five men in Dover.

The 17-year-old was left with a black eye after being targeted by the group as she walked from Pencester Road to Ladywell.

The men are said to have asked her for a cigarette - but was pushed and punched in the eye when she said she did not have one before the group walked away.
