The 15-year-old has since been released under investigation. The two others are still being questioned.

Officers launched a murder enquiry after Kyle, who was from Gillingham, was fatally injured in the attack at 8.10pm on Friday.

A number of people were reported to be causing criminal damage to a silver Renault Clio shortly before Kyle was stabbed and later died in hospital.

A 21-year-old man, from the Gillingham area, who was arrested on Tuesday in Woolwich, London, also remains in custody.

Three others from Gillingham, aged 15, 16 and 18, have all been bailed until various dates in November.

A 20-year-old man from Gillingham has been released under investigation. 

Investigating officer, Detective Inspector Ivan Beasley said:"Kent Police continues to update Kyle’s family throughout this investigation and I know Kyle’s family is keen for everyone to remain calm despite the tragic circumstances of Kyle’s death and I would echo those sentiments.

"I’d also like to appeal to anyone who may have information about this incident and who has not yet spoken to the police to get in touch by calling 01634 792209 quoting reference SI/XY/009396/17. Alternatively call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111."
