The air ambulance landed close to Westcourt primary school and flew the 56-year-old to a London hospital.

South East Coast Ambulance said it sent an ambulance along with two cars in addition to the air ambulance.

One neighbour, who did not want to be named, claimed the man was assaulted after opening his front door.

He suffered abdomen injuries but his condition is understood not to be life-threatening.
