Gravesham council's deep cleaning service had to send out two vans to the scene to clean blood from the road after a number of complaints were received, and a bloodstained t-shirt was also spotted bundled on the floor.

It was reported that the injured pair suffered the stab wounds following a disturbance outside shops in Arthur Street.
