After a dispute, a fight broke out, and the victim, a 17- year-old boy from Maidstone, suffered a suspected stab wound.

A witness said there was heavy police activity in the area.

"Last night about 4am there was a horrendous noise that I think was a helicopter, but I couldn't see it.

"I could see vehicles and lights that I thought were police, but not sure.

"This morning in the daylight there were still three police cars there, and just as I was out front a police forensic van went past."
